To access the Download Applications window, in Lab Management or in the ALM project, select Tools > Download Standalone Applications.

To enable downloading standalone applications:

1. Login to Performance Center Server.
2. Navigate to the Additional components folder locatedin the PC installation DVD. or from the Installation core files directory for a ALM-PC,
3. Navigate to C:Program FilesHPPerformance Center ServerPCWEBDownloads (If installed in default location)
4. Copy all the executable (.exe files) from the additional components folderto the folder mentioned in Step(3).

Note:
The necessary .exe files for downloading VuGen, Analysis, Snapshot Viewer, Standalone Load Generator (LG), Monitor over Firewall, and MI Listener, are located in the Applications directory, which is contained within the Additional Components directory.

These standalones application, VuGen, Analysis and LG will need to be patches to 11.52 and then to 11.52 patch1. The standalone patches are available on the Orasi SupportWeb on the Download page.

5. Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager and perform the following:

For IIS 6:
1. Navigate to Default Web Site > LoadTest > Downloads
2. Right click on Downloads and open Properties
3. Go to Directory tab > Execute permissions > Change it to ''Scripts only''
4. Reset IIS.

For IIS 7:
1. Navigate to the Default Web Site > LoadTest > Downloads
2. Double-click Handler Mappings
3. Click Edit Feature Permissions... in the Action sub-window on the far right of the screen
4. Ensure that Read, Scripts and Execute is checked
5. Click OK
6. Restart IIS

Make sure that there is no Handler defined for .exe. If any Handler is configured for .exe, please change it to something else. eg. Exe2

Note: You may need to refresh the Download Applications window for the changes to take effect.

Thanks David, but issue was something else. I checked with HP and they have provide resolution.

After the above steps mentioned by you are done, we need to run below query for each project in PC database to enable download

INSERT INTO ACTIONS VALUES ('ac_download_apps_pc', NULL, '101001011','000000000','-','N','N',NULL,'DownloadApplications')

Use the below query to verify the record was added to the table.

SELECT * FROM ACTIONS order by AC_OPERATION_NAME

**This is a direct quote from the HP Performance Center 12.01 user manual, page 76-77
Enabling Downloading Standalone Applications**

This section explains the steps necessary to enable you to download standalone applications from the Download Applications window.

**Note:** To access the Download Applications window, in Lab Management or in the ALM project, select Tools > Download Standalone Applications.

**To enable downloading standalone applications:**

- Insert the HP ALM Performance Center Additional Components installation disk (DVD 2) and navigate to the Additional Components directory. This directory contains the applications' execution (.exe) files.

**Note:** The necessary .exe files for downloading VuGen, Analysis, Snapshot Viewer, Standalone Load Generator, Monitor over Firewall, and MI Listener, are located in the Applications directory, which is contained within the Additional Components directory.

- On the Performance Center server, navigate to the Downloads directory, which is located in ''Performance Center Server installation directory''PCWEBDownloads.

- To enable downloading an application, copy the relevant execution file (.exe) from the Additional Components directory on the DVD to the Downloads directory on the Performance Center server.

Note: You may need to refresh the Download Applications window for the changes to take effect. These SA standalone version do not include any patches, (example VuGen 12.01 may need to have LR 12.01 patch 3 install if you are on Alm-PC 12.01 patch 1)

**Customizing the Download Applications Window**

You can edit and customize the appearance of the Downloads Applications window. To customize the window, edit the downloads.xml file located in the Downloads directory on the Performance Center server.

The following tags in the downloads file control the following features on the window. Edit the tags as desired to change the appearance of the window.

- **App Name**. The name of the application.
- **Image**. Whether the application's icon appears to the left or to the right of the name.
- **File Name**. If you changed the name of the application's execution file, you must update this section so that it matches the new name of the execution file.
- **Description**. The application's description.

-----
These SA standalone Applications do not include any patches, (example VuGen 12.01 may need to have LR 12.01 patch 3 installed, if you are on ALM-PC 12.01 patch 1)

I have the same question concerning 12.5x.

I used a zip file for the download and install of Performance Center 12.55. When I navigate to the Additional Components directory from the install file directory, there are no executables for VuGen or Analysis. What I do see are setup files for HPE NV and Log Collator.

I went back to the original zip file and the Additonal Components directory was the same.

Can you provide the workaround for 12.5x?

Thanks.
