Unable to Activate License on Virtual Machine

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.

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

To run automated tests in a virtual environment, you use virtual machines as test workstations and use some physical computer as the License Manager PCs.

Also, note that if you have TestExecute installed on a virtual machine, there is no need to activate the product instance there. Activate the license on the physical License Manager PC; activation on workstation is not necessary.

For information on running TestExecute on virtual machines, see Using TestExecute on Virtual Machines.
