    Silk loses control of mouse

    Has anyone else seen this? You run the same suite of tests (Silk test plan) over and over (say every hour for 100 hours) - until your mouse freezes and every subsequent test case that relies on the mouse, fails. The only way we found to release the mouse is to press CTRL-ALT-DEL, then Cancel. Is this even possible programmatically in SilkTest? Or is there something else we can do? Note: we are not talking about some abnormally high clicking. Our mouse speed is set to default 0 (Agent.SetOption (OPT_MOUSE_DELAY, 0)) and we use sleep() calls copiously to try to be as realistic as possible with the speed of GUI interaction. We are on Silk 5.5 SP1. We have seen this problem on W2K servers, but not so far on XP servers. Same Silk code. Any ideas?

    Re: Silk loses control of mouse

    I have also come across this.

    I resolved it by setting the OPT_MOUSE_DELAY to about 0.2. Eg: (Agent.SetOption (OPT_MOUSE_DELAY, 0.2))

    However, this is not always the case. I contacted support and there solution was that it is a timing issue. Thus, increase the delay on the mouse click should solve this in theory, but not always in practice.

    Try 0.2 and see how that goes.
