Files are not downloaded during a Browser Driven Load Test in Silk Performer 15.5 when using Remote Agent machines

Files are not downloaded during a Browser Driven Load Test in Silk Performer 15.5 when using Remote Agent machines

When running a browser driven load test within Silk Performer 15.5 that includes logic to download a file(s) to a local disk, i.e:

BrowserSetOption(BROWSER_OPT_FILEDOWNLOAD_SAVEFILE, FILEDOWNLOAD_SAVEFILE_SAVELAST);

BrowserDlgDownload();

The file will be stored within the project's results folder*. This is both true for a load test and a TryScript.

There is a known issue within Silk Performer 15.5 in that the downloaded files are not written to the project’s result folder when a remote agent machine is used during test execution**.

The problem lies in the agent processes (specifically the perfBrowserHost process) trying to write the file to the wrong results directory.

This problem has been acknowledged as a bug and will be officially addressed with the release of Silk Performer 16.0.

* For recording, files are stored in the current project folder

** The problem is only applicable when running a load test with a remote agent. Using the local machine as an agent, the downloaded files will be correctly stored within the results directory.
