Problem with SilkCentral Test Manager and SilkTest Workbench

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 06 September 2011]

Hi all,
When i try to execute SilkTest Workbench test within the SilkCentral TestManager it does not work. In the test definition result form the following fatal result appears :

Could not connect to SilkTest Workbench. Please make sure it is installed.

And the log file includes the following lines :

SilkTest Workbench [SilkTestWBProjectName=Common, SilkTestWBscriptName=Untitled_1, SilkTestWBscriptType=Visual Test, playbackOptions=System Defaults]
Start executing script: Untitled_1
before COM4J cleanup

Following is the configuration:
OS is Windows XP Professional with Service Pack2
SilkCentral TestManager 2010 with SQLServer 2008 Express
SilkTest Workbench 2010 with SQLServer 2005 Express
Firewall is on

Would anybody like to help about this issue?

Hi Adil,

The reason for this error is that when running SilkTest Workbench scripts from SilkCentral Test Manager, SilkTest Workbench looks for a runtime license. It is likely that you were not provided with one as part of the SilkTest license.

Therefore to resolve this you should log a support incident with us via the SupportLine website showing the error message and then we can provide the SilkTest Workbench Runtime license needed.

Also this issue will be fixed in the forthcoming release of SilkTest 2011.
