StarDock WindowBlinds 3 and Rational Robot
User Sean P. Kane (firstname.lastname@example.org) posted:
Here's an odd one, but has anyone ever been running a product by StarDock
called WindowBlinds (Windows Theming Tool) on a machine with Rational Robot
installed? I have reported this to Rational, but it seems that some of the
GUI changes that WindowBlinds make, somehow make it so that Robot can no
longer introspect into a Java application. Robot no longer sees any object
or data in the Java app at all, it just looks like a "window" to Robot. Was
wondering if anyone had experienced and/or fixed this before.

Yeah, I recall seeing this before on my desktop... (I wouldn't dare install
that on a lab machine). It seemed that Robot couldn't find any of the
standard window buttons (close, restore, maximize, minimize...) so I told
windowblinds to not skin robot and the AUT and everything was Okie-day...
That is of course, unless you are specifically testing the ability of your
AUT to interact with windowblinds
