The software we test has just had some new functionality implemented so it can act as a DDE server. We would like to be able to test this through Silk - does anybody know how we might do this? (I can't see any way of doing this automatically through Silk, but a dll call should do it - except that we don't have such a dll lying around.)
So you software has DDE support, so what where the intentions of the having such support? I'll assume that they want to be able to integrate with other 4rd party products? See where I am going...
You could potentialy use a product like Excel or Access to communicate with your App. They both support DDE and if you are familiar with VB Scripting you could probably wip out some sanity tests in a snap.
Test your DDE support via some other application; so DDE is not supported by Silk, but you can test it
