If you are running a private instance you should migrate to wptagent before that happens. If you are using the EC2 AMI's, there are Linux AMI's already available with wptagent and Windows AMIs (with IE support) will be available in early 2018 (January probably).

Hi, I've actually been using webPageTest for ever! ( and in fact my new developers now want to use lighthouse as well. BUT my main issue is just recently, with the setup of the new version. For years, I've just been copying over files in my setup and occasionally updating my network driver. But now I'm a bit stuck with how to move forwards. I really need a full page on properly setting up a new private instance. I've had a look, I've assumed I should run to get the agent up and running. BUT, I'm running into problems. it might be something to do with x64 versus dlls built for x86 - I'm not sure. I get this trace from that call:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 705, in <module>
File "", line 697, in main
agent = WPTAgent(options, browsers)
File "", line 23, in __init__
from internal.webpagetest import WebPageTest
File "C:\webpagetest\wptagent\internal\", line 19, in <module>
import ujson as json
ImportError: DLL load failed: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.

BUT, I have set it all up according to the instructions I've found, including getting the MS compiler from the debug notes from python:

'error: Microsoft Visual C++ 9.0 is required. Get it from'

Help! (please). Is there an easy way round this? Would it be possible to have a standard windows install for the whole thing? (an msi)?

Also, it's not clear to me exactly what I need to do with that network component? Do I need that anymore? And all the locations etc. in the old ini files...
