    Need feedback: Best combination of Silktest and Browser

    Hi everyone. I would like to know what version of Silktest and Browser everyone is using. Maybe in the following format:

    Windows OS:
    Silktest Version (including SP):
    Browser type and version:

    If there is a combination that you know works well, please state it. If there are also known combinations that don't work well, please state them.

    This will save me and others some grey hairs.

    Thanks in advance all you Silktest gurus!

    Re: Need feedback: Best combination of Silktest and Browser

    Thanks to everyone who replied on this already. From the initial comments, I will be using Win2K with Silk 5.5 SP1.

    Thanks again. Any further tips on setup will greatly be appreciated.
    I'm going to be using DOM initially since I recall that it worked a bit better on some web applications I was testing in the past with version 5.03 of Silk.

    Best Regards,
    Scuzzii

    Re: Need feedback: Best combination of Silktest and Browser

    It must be nice to be able to confine web testing to one browser. Is this for an intranet, rather than a public web site?

    Re: Need feedback: Best combination of Silktest and Browser

    That kind of puzzled me as well. Our current project supports
    IE6
    IE5.5
    IE5.0
    NS4.7
    NS6.0
    NS6.2 Mac
    IE5.1 Mac

    My preferred combo is as listed above, but the code has to work for all of them (except Mac).

    Re: Need feedback: Best combination of Silktest and Browser

    This is a public site. Yes, we do have to support all browser platforms as well as an embedded browser in our Win application.

    I am at the beginning phase of getting some portions of manual tests automated and wanted to know what the best combination was so that I didn't run into a wall straight out of the gates (gotta crawl before you can walk).

    I hope that I am not setting myself up for failure as I try to make these scripts as portable as possible.

    Re: Need feedback: Best combination of Silktest and Browser

    I have worked with silktest 5.0 for a few months
    OS: WinNT SP2
    Browser: IE 5.0 Netscape 4.0

    I found that Silk Scripts work comfortably with with all windows platforms. We used a PQDI Image configruation software to test applications in different platforms.

    All the Best for your Efforts
