    SilkTest freezes during DOS ftp routine

    Hello all,

    an app I'm testing calls a DOS window to import spreadsheets via ftp. I can capture the window declaration for the DOS window, but when the testcase is run SilkTest freezes. I have to Ctrl-Alt-Del and kill the process in Task Manager before the ftp will complete.

    running through the app by itself, the ftp import shouldn't take longer that 2-2.5 mins. With this problem it runs until the process is killed.

    Is SilkTest even designed to handle DOS Windows?

    any help is appreciated.

    Re: SilkTest freezes during DOS ftp routine

    A. No, SilkTest is not designed to handle DOS windows. It can, but it's designed for GUI-based applications, not ASCII-based applications like those running in a DOS window. (Okay, all you BlueExpress users out there know that's not entirely true, but it's true enough.)

    Someone posted some FTP functions here that use the Windows API. Those may help.

    Also, you may want to research using FTP -S from the SYS_Execute command inside SilkTest. You can put all of the commands inside of a straight ASCII file (hint: checkout ListWrite), pass that file to the FTP command with the -s switch, and FTP will do the rest. For example:

    I hope this helps.

    In the forums here and in the download section is an API for doing FTP using 4Test. Just search for ftpClass. Works much better than using a DOS window.
