Virtual Machine Detected

Applies to TestExecute 15.40, last modified on May 21, 2024

This page is related to key-based licenses — a regular license type used in TestExecute 15.40. For information on the new ID-based license type, see SmartBear ID-based Licenses.

When you try to activate your license on a virtual machine, TestExecute will display this error message.

You cannot activate your license on a virtual computer. Activate it on a physical computer only.

If you need to run automated tests on virtual computers:

  1. Select a physical computer that you will use as the License Manager PC.

  2. Install License Manager or TestExecute on that physical computer and activate the license there.

  3. Install TestExecute on your virtual machines and use these machines to run automated tests with TestExecute.

You can also try resolving the problem by using the Licensing Troubleshooter on our web site:
