I recommend you upgrade to  LRP 2021

  • Plan for 2-3 days down time To ensure you have time to deal with any issue that pop-up, if any
  • Review the installation guide Before starting LoadRunner Professional Installation Guide
  • Review the Support Matrix (System Requirements)
  • Review all the Known issues
  • Make backups (ALL SCRIPTS)
  • Disable DEP Set  DEP to AlwaysOff
  • Disable UAC in the Registry
  • Run and save all old scripts in the new VuGen before running in a load test  to ensure they are updated and work properly.
  • Be prepare to record some script ( Specially TruClient script due the 100's of change to the truclient Protocols
  • The Hardware listed is ok; however, 3 to 4 times the  RAM, CPU cores, and hard drive space is better
  • 2 LG's with 8GB,2cores (i5), may not be enough to run 1000 to 2000 Vusers. Be prepare to add more LG's ( on-premise, in private cloud (installed manually), or by use the LG cloud providing option)

Good luck and happy testing
