Relative Paths for Scripts

You can specify a relative location for a script in your scenario. The location can be relative to the current scenario folder, or relative to the LoadRunner installation folder.

When you run a scenario, the script is automatically copied from this relative location to a temporary folder on the load generator running the script. This enables the load generator to access the script locally instead of over a network.

To specify a path relative to the current scenario director, type either of the following notations at the start of the script path:

Notation
Description
./
Indicates that the path is relative to the location of the scenario folder
../
Indicates that the path is relative to the location of the parent folder of the scenario folder

For example, if the current scenario is located at F:\scenarios, to specify that the script, user1, is located in F:\scenarios\scripts, you could type:

./scripts/user1

To specify a path relative to the LoadRunner installation folder (%lr_path%), type a percent sign (%) at the beginning of the script path.

For example, if the LoadRunner installation folder is located at C:\LoadRunner, to specify that the script, user1, is located in C:\LoadRunner\scripts, you could type:

%\scripts\user1
%scripts\user1

Note: When specifying a relative path, you can include standard DOS notation (.\ and ..\) inside the path, as shown in the following example: M:\LR\my_tests\..\..\test.usr.
