Thursday, March 04, 2010 6:29 PMIs there a trial virtual user licenses key available so we can start trying the VS2010 load test agent and controller capabilities? I understand at RTM we will get an appropriate number of keys given the number of agents we acquired for the 2008 platform.
Tuesday, March 16, 2010 4:48 PMHere are two good links on this. There is a way to add virtual user licenses for the pre-release versions of VS 2010 for free: http://blogs.msdn.com/anutthara/archive/2010/01/21/how-to-simulate-more-than-250-virtual-users-on-load-test-in-vs2010-beta2.aspx.
Here is a good article on the differences in licensing for the test agent between VS 2008 and VS 2010: http://blogs.msdn.com/edglas/archive/2009/10/20/introducing-the-microsoft-visual-studio-load-test-virtual-user-pack-2010.aspx. It looks like there will be a license migration but the exact details are not that clear now. This should be clearer closer to RTM.
