After a number of departures and redundancies I seem to be the person to upgrade TestComplete/TestExecute. We are currently running TC11 but need to upgrade to TC14.
Looking at the Sentinel Admin Control Center we have 18 Perpetual licences for TestExecute (TE11) and 7 Perpetual licences for TestComplete (TC11).
How do I proceed?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Here's how to upgrade: https://support.smartbear.com/testcomplete/docs/general-info/migrating.html
It needs to be done everywhere you have the client installed.
Very important things:
Thank you for the swift reply.
The problem I have is relates to upgrading the licence to version 14 and then individual PCs with TC and/or TE. Your link provided was useful and helped me find the licensing information I need.
We are fortunate that we have just started to migrate our large testpack from QTP to TestComplete and are trying out different options.
The current testpack consists of about 250 files of VBscript functions with test data held in a mixture of Excel, XML and Access files, developed over the last 10+ years.
Well, I'd start with contacting sales. If you don't have a current maintenance agreement with SmartBear, there's going to be a cost involved with upgrading from TC 11 to TC 14.
If you do have such an agreement, when you go to your portal, you will see download information for the installers for the executables as well as license key information for adding new keys to your License Manager. You will need those new keys because, technically speaking, you can run TC 11 and TC 14 in parallel on the same machine. So, you won't lose your TC 11 licenses but you will gain TC 14 licenses.
So... as mentioned, first stop, contact SmartBear sales.
