When an old Analysis session (an .lra file) is opened in LoadRunner Analysis 11.51, LoadRunner Analysis 11.52 and 11.52 Patch 1:
Analysis displays a confirmation dialog if the user wants the session to be converted to a new version.
After clicking on “OK” button Analysis shows the error message “Cannot open session. An error occurred while converting this session from an older Analysis" is displayed:
An error occurs when Analysis 11.51, 11.52 or 11.52 Patch 1 attempts to convert an Analysis session, which was created with an older version of LoadRunner.
As a workaround, conversion can be bypassed by following these steps:
- Go to the Analysis session folder
- Locate the file with an .lra extension, and open it in a text editor like Notepad.
- Find "VerNo" and change its value to 13
- Save this change.
- Try to open the session file in the Analysis.
The data should now be viewable in Analysis.
