    Closing SilkTest window after command-line execution?

    Tried the -q option, but with odd results:

    if a script fails, the SilkTest window closes without a hitch. if a script passes, however, the SilkTest window remains on the taskbar (blinking repeatedly) until it is clicked on.

    Has anyone else run into this problem? If so, how did you get around it? Or, is this a SilkTest bug that needs fixing?

    I've never had this happen to me. What version and o/s are you on?

    I bet you are on Win98 or Win2000. There is a registry fix on the CD that helps sometimes. Look in the W98_2000 directory on the CD and see if that helps.

    Use regedit to find:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop "ForegroundLockTimeout"

    and set its value to 0 (zero).

    Then reboot to have it take effect.

    That'll stop the blinking.

    Re: Closing SilkTest window after command-line execution?

    Many thanks!

    The registry setting fixed my problems.

    For anyone else interested, a google search for the setting gave a good explanation:

    Windows 2000 doesn't allow a backround task to instantly steal focus. Two REG_DWORD values control the process. Use Regedt32 to navigate to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop

    ForegroundLockTimeout defaults to 200000 milliseconds. It specifies that time period, after user input, during which the system will NOT allow an application to force itself into the foreground.

    ForegroundFlashCount is the number of flashes the system will use to notify you that a backround tasks wants focus. If ForegroundLockTimeout has elapesed since the last user input, the window will automatically be brought to the foreground.
