    \"Ctrl-Alt-Delete\" Key Sequence in Silk

    I am trying to execute <Ctrl-Alt-Delete> via Silk. I do window.TypeKeys ("<Ctrl-Alt-Delete> ") but I do not get the shutdown screen. Actually nothing happens. How can I execute this sequence of keys through Silk?

    Thank you.

    I don't believe SilkTest will allow you to do this. There is an api call you can try from shell32.dll called SHShutDownDialog.

    Take declarations on this little app and see if it helps you.

    Bummer... It's 104k zipped so I can't attach it.

    If you want to post your email I can send it to you.

    It's an app that will read and modify your boot.ini and reboot into the OS you specify.

    Just happened to be a smidgit to large to attach as a zip file.

    This is an occaision when simulating the keystrokes won't work. Windows looks for the actual hardware event which SilkTest doesn't produce. Using the API call, or another app that uses this call is the only way to go here.

    Re: \"Ctrl-Alt-Delete\" Key Sequence in Silk

    I am not trying to reboot the system. The entire system is frozen, during Silk execution. The only way to regain control of the mouse is to manually hit the <Ctrl-Alt-Delete> key sequence. Then select "Cancel" or hit <Esc>. When the screen is back to the app, mouse control is fine and Silk can continue. Otherwise it is completely stuck.
