AQS Transaction Generator

NOTE: The NCC upgraded the security protocol that they use from TLS 1.1 to TLS 1.2 and the QA Transaction Generator can no longer communicate with the NCC server.  A new version of the QA Transaction Generator has been released that resolves the problem and is now available with a full install.  Unfortunately it isn’t possible to release an upgrade to fix the issue, the NCC server will not accept the connection from the QA Transaction Generator unless it is using TLS 1.2.

Please use the following steps to obtain the latest version of the QA Transaction Generator:

  • You will need Administrator rights
    • If you don’t have Administrator rights you’ll need to get your IT department to assist you
  • Uninstall the QA Transaction Generator
  • Download the latest version of the QA Transaction Generator
  • Follow the Installation Instructions
