1005Re: GuiTest running on remote server doesn't work properly
- Aug 19, 2005Thanks, I'll look into that security idea. Hadn't thought of that at all.
as far as the functioning: the rest of the perl script works just as normal. in fact, the real
problem is that, because I'm using a system call to start the program and guitest to kill it,
what happens is that after running for a while, there are about a dozen instances of the
program running and some limit gets reached and then windows won't let the perl script
open any more instances.
I don't know about any specific function return values, except for that one system call to
start the aplication. It returns successful because it is calling a start command and not
just the application itself. So that isn't really related to guitest. I will put some debugging
code in to save the error codes and get back with that info.
Thanks for the help,
