    Win 98 Vs Silk Test

    Hi,

    I have Silk Test 5.0.1 installed on Windows 98 OS. With Win 98's active
    desktop always enabled, I am not able to test web applications. When both
    Silk Test and Browser are running, the browser gives error saying, "This
    program has performed an illegal operation...". Has anyone come across this
    problem? Any help on this will be highly appreciated.

    Hi!

    As best as I know, you should switch off active desktop.
    At least this is the solution on NT. It is described somewhere in the installation guide.

    Re: Win 98 Vs Silk Test

    I had simular problems with wind8, Segue way did not have a real clear answer. In fact during class the instructor had a simular problem and resolved the issue by reboot. I on the other hand have started using NT, it is a more stable inviroment and I seem to have less errors. With this said, I am new to Automated testing and do not consider myself an expert by any means. Good Luck.

    Kavitha,
    I had no Problem in working with silk 5.0.3,If you face the same problem go to Options Runtime and select default or IE or netscape.Make sure try with either IE or Netscape ,I hope this may solve your problem.

    Re: Win 98 Vs Silk Test

    Silk does have issues with Active desktop on any OS. The best scenario is to remove all components which may alter or affect test scripts in any way. I would recommend testing on NT4 with active desktop not installed at all. The headaches around making active desktop are not worth it.

    The only good test environment is a stable one in which no external setting or variable plays a role in a test case's validity, integrity, or outcome.
