    5.5 SP1 better on XP than SP2

    Last week I tried running some test cases with 5.5 SP2 (Build 964n) under XP and kept getting *** Error: Unable to open file [file on network drive] -- Sharing violation.

    I uninstalled SP2 and reinstalled SP1 (Build 68) on the same machine and the tests ran without errors. I reinstalled SP2 and immediately re-ran the tests and the Sharing Violation errors returned.

    How is it that the pre-XP version of Silk Test works better than the XP-specific version?

    That is not just with XP. I was getting Sharing Violation errors as well using SilkTest 5.5 SP2 under Windows 2K.

    Seems to happen if file i/o is a main part of your test framework. SilkTest International had the same problem.

    Seems like most people are sticking with SP1 for now.

    I wish I'd posted last week. I might have some hair left now! I tried everything I could think of and it was only today that I backed the SP out in desperation.
