    Silktest and WinXP

    We have been asked to run our scripts under WinXP and I was wondering if anyone has any experiences they would like to share. Our application is a C/S windows application.

    Re: Silktest and WinXP

    I was able to get all of our scripts to run on XP, with these changes.

    1) I had to use the "old" way of viewing the windows, SilkTest could not maximize a MainWin with the "new" fat and pretty icons in XP. Expect Segue to address this in the future.

    2) I had to disable the Windows Time service, as I use the freeware Dimension4 atomic clock tool to reset date / time in tests.

    3) I had to disable the feature that hides tray icons that are inactive, as I expect to find a product icon that XP decided to hide...

    4) Had to change a window tag for a tray icon, it looks different in XP when compared to Windows 2000.

    4) I disabled personalized menus.
