I've never tried it (I've successfully avoided ME), but this is from the release notes....
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">quote:</font><HR> Note to Windows Millennium Edition (ME) users
If you are installing SilkTest on a Windows ME machine, there is an extra step you must do if you are installing or downloading SilkTest from the Web.
For this reason, we highly recommend that you install SilkTest from the installation CD or from a network drive where the CD has been loaded. If you do this, the installer will automatically reboot to update some system files and will then restart. The install then continues as usual.
If you are not using an installation CD or installing from a network drive, you need to:
<LI>install or download SilkTest.exe from the Web
<LI>reboot your machine
<LI>rerun SilkTest.exe from the Web or from the local directory to which you saved it
<LI>the install then continues as usual
We contacted Segue about this bug. Here is the exact procedure that our quality engineers use (successfully):
Don't install directly from the Web site. Either install from a CD, or download the installation file to your local system or server and install from there.
Before installing search for the application program "msconfig" & make a note of its location.
From the Windows Start menu, select Run, & use the Browse button to select msconfig.
Select the Startup Tab
Disable the following items:
Click Apply button
Reboot (if reboot doesn't happen automatically). You will probably get a dialog informing you that you are running in a "debug" mode.
Install SilkTest 5.5 as usual.
After Installation, re-enable the 2 system settings & reboot yet again.
One user reported receiving a message about her system settings at this point - she rebooted again(!) & the message disappeared.
