The LoadRunner License Utility - New License dialog box enables you to install a new license by using either a license file or a license key.
- License file. When you purchase a new license, HP may send you an email with an attached license file. The license file contains the license keys for one or more licenses. When you use the license file to install the new licenses, the LoadRunner License Utility reads the license file and extracts all the license keys that are included in the license file. You can then select which of the available licenses to install. You may choose to use a license file to install LoadRunner licenses because the license file enables you to install multiple licenses simultaneously.
License key. Unlike a license file, a license key enables you to install just a single license at a time. You may receive the license key directly from HP, or the license key may be included in a license file that you receive from HP.
