    testing with ie5.5? browser type specifier?

    I got the 5.0.3.2 update for silktest which is said to support IE5.5 according to the release notes. What is the browser type specifier that you would use to tell remote machines to test with ie5.5?

    for example there's netscape4, explorer3, explorer4, explorer5, explorer5_DOM but I don't know what to use for ie5.5

    thanks,
    Dave

    Re: testing with ie5.5? browser type specifier?

    well...I took a closer look and the extensions dialog shows ie5.x

    so I suppose this includes all the subversions from 5.0 to 5.9

    However, I could not invoke ie5.5 remotely on another test machine with an agent running with tcp/ip:2965.

    The browser launches 2 or 3 times as if silktest agent isn't able to identify the browser is running. Works fine with ie5.0 but had the same problems with ie4.0sp2.

    Could it be that the agent was silktest5.0.3.1 and the host machine(driver) was running 5.0.3.2?

    I'll try this next. By the way has anyone done web testing on windows95? I get an error message saying
