Unable to Activate License on Virtual Machine

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

To create tests in a virtual environment, you use virtual machines as workstations and use some physical computer as the License Manager PC. This approach means that you have to use a Floating User license of TestLeft. Node-Locked licenses of TestLeft cannot be used for testing on virtual machines.

To run automated tests in a virtual environment, you also can use TestExecute or TestComplete licensed with a Floating User license.

For information on running automated tests on virtual machines, see Using TestLeft on Virtual Machines.
