    setactive() often fails on one NT box

    I have a dell optiplex NT box (nt4.0sp5ws) where the window.setactive frequently fails, even when there are no other windows on the desktop.

    The window tests fine for window.exists and "window.isenabled" but then throws and exception on "windows.setactive" saying "window cannot be set active".

    After several retries, sometimes it suddenly starts working again.

    This is is agent only mode controlled from a remote machine.

    Wierd eh ?

    Re: setactive() often fails on one NT box

    Not sure if this will help or not ... I also run on Dell optiplex boxes with NT4/SP5. I'm guessing that the "ws" in your description means NT workstation versus server. Mine are servers (even though they don't need to be - they could be workstations). That might be the difference. But in any case, I have not seen the problem you are describing. My point is that perhaps the hardware is not part of the problem.

    Re: setactive() often fails on one NT box

    At this point I am satisfied that it is a system resource issue.

    The CPU was very highly loaded (85 - 90%), seems the SetActive command is more sensitive to CPU load than most, and tends to timeout. Segue tech support concur that such behavior is consistent with high CPU load.

    When I kill the competing tasks, with CPU load below 10% I have not seen any problem with the SetActive() function.
