Last Modified: 2008-01-09
   I have a VB6 Multi-User application that I want to stress test. I want to simulate up to 300 users on the system.
Does anyone have any links to tools either free or for save where I can automate the process. Any help at all will be welcome.

you could make a batch file which opens the application 300 times, thereby testing if 300 programs can be active at the same time.

adding appropriate behavior for each program will not be so easy I guess...
