    Re: Scripts on Workstation NT vs.Terminal Server


    I have had similar problems.

    In particular, I have a script which works fine on W-9X but freezes on radio button picks on one screen on Win-NT-WS. The application under test uses the Microsoft MSI Installer. What kind of app are you testing ? Does it use MSI Installer ?

    BTW I have discussed this at length with Segue, but so far they do not have a solution for me.

    Scripts on Workstation NT vs.Terminal Server

    Hi,

    The set of scripts which run fine on Workstation NT freezes on Terminal Server.
    Particularly when a menu item needs to be picked. And I do mean freeze!!! The scripts will sit at the Pick() statement for hours and hours without timing out.

    Any ideas!!!
    Thanks in advance...

    Re: Scripts on Workstation NT vs.Terminal Server


    AJ, by the way, seque support just responded back saying that Terminal Server is not one of the supported platforms for Silktest 5.0.1.

    So what's the scoop!!

    Re: Scripts on Workstation NT vs.Terminal Server

    OK Here's the scoop... Although it may be not applicable in your situation... I really did not understand the original posting well, but here's a trick

    In the Segue downloads or in Automation Expertise resources (the same file) there's a function that says Reset Browser... Now note "case 2" if you pass in 2 to the function. It does a few things that seem to unlock the agent magically

    Now that may not be applicable in a non browser env, but I would give it or something similar a try... Try Desktop instead of Browser?

    Note this is not MY discovery, it's John Green's of automation expertise "a good friend & associate of mine "

    Re: Scripts on Workstation NT vs.Terminal Server

    This might be of interest.

    I am continuing to investigate, it is possible the suggested workaround is helping.

    Plus I have added another workaround of my own.

    The situation I have seems to be specific to the fact that we use the new Microsoft MSI Installer as our package distribution format. This system is somewhat buggy and sometimes dumps *.msi files in the directory

    C:\WinNT\installer

    when installations are aborted or fail.

    A while ago my developer colleagues advised me that these files tend to slow things down considerably, I do not know why.

    I have cleaned out the C:\WinNT\installer directory on my test machines, and so far, with the desktop.getchildren() command inserted, I have not seen any screen freezes recently.

    It seems that having lots of *.msi files present increases the tendency of the NT screens to freeze up. It also slows the machines down and generally reduces their performance.

    I will continue to monitor the situation.

    I have informed Segue of the MSI installer in the past, and they said they would do some testing, but I have not heard back.

    Best regards,

    Charles F. Radley.
