How can I resolve the error: "SilkPerformer execution error - NULL" when executing a SilkPerformer script from SilkCentral Test Manager ?

Resolution:

ANSWER
----------------------------------
The Execution error

"SilkPerformer Execution Error - null"

can be caused by the following setup:

SilkCentral Test Manager 7.0
SilkPerformer 6.5.1 agents

In the Application Event log of the agent machine you will see the following message:

"SilkPerformer Runtime Event: RESERR: 154 - Wrong BEX file format, the specified bex file is not a valid executable file"


The error occurs because the bex [compiled] file format created by SilkPerformer 6.5.1 is not compatible with SilkCentral Test Manager 7.0.

A patch is available to resolve this error Download SilkCentral TestManager 7.0 Patch
