Error with Screen Recorder connection to ALM on XP client
Question ID: 104632

Trying to get HP Screen Recorder to work on a XP client machine. I have installed from the add-ins page, and when launched, it prompts for QC url and once entered I click on OK and get error:

Inner Exception message:

HP has a knowledge base article on that exact error.
Their solution is as follows:


Non admin Windows XP users cannot access and save files in %ALLUSERSPROFILE%Application DataHPALM-Platform-Loader


On the affected workstation the user should manually copy file ''interop.ALPLoader.dll''to %ALLUSERSPROFILE%Application DataHPALM-Platform-Loader

Also to add, be sure to have the latest version of HP Quality Center Connectivity Add-in installed on your client machines. And stay current on patch levels!
