    Hi,

     

    It is not required to install sample web application (i.e. IIS with proper components) on the same computer that has LoadComplete installed. You may install provided sample application on any computer within your local network (including virtual machine) that has IIS installed.

    Actually, this is even more preferable setup because:

    -- On the one hand, the closer to the load generating tool (LoadComplete) tested application is installed the better, because this eliminates sporadic network delays that are irrelevant for load test and may just obscure test results;

    -- On the other hand, it is not the best idea to install tested software on the same machine with load generating tool because in this case there will be concurrency for the system resources (like CPU, memory, etc.) that may influence test results.

    I would recommend:

    --  documentation (https://support.smartbear.com/loadcomplete/docs/tutorials/getting-started/first-test/index.html); and

    -- webinar recordings from the https://support.smartbear.com/screencasts/loadcomplete/ page.
