    Invoke Windows Security Dialog

    Does anyone know of a way to invoke the Windows Security Dialog via SilkTest? using Desktop.TypeKeys("<ctrl_alt-delete>") does not do it. My AUT will sporadically freeze and then only way to free it up is to ctrl-alt-del and then cancel the dialog.

    Re: Invoke Windows Security Dialog

    Hi Tony,

    I have the same problem with my client\server application and I have also had problems calling the NT security window. I found this Process viewer which I use instead. It is available free from http://www.prcview.com. I can call this simply by using the start method and then killing the process. This has worked great for me.

    Cheers,
    Conor

    I've tried killing the process but the cursor still seems to be frozen and after relaunching the application, SilkTest is putting garbage characters into the textfields.

    What Security Dialog? You can start the "Local Security Policy" dialog by running mmc.exe.

    If you instead mean the Task Manager to kill an errant process use this:
    Start("C:\winnt\system32\taskmgr.exe", "C:\winnt\system32\", "{this.WndTag}",1) ;

    Re: Invoke Windows Security Dialog

    mmc runs the Microsoft Management Console. When you type Ctrl-Alt-Del, it brings up a 'Windows Security' dialog. Doing this seems to free up my freeze problem. When trying to type the Ctrl-Alt-Del via Silk, nothing happens. Killing a process is not an issue for me. I can do that. I just need to unfreeze my machine.
