How does licensing work for GUI-Level testing?

Please note: since Silk Performer 2007, GUI-Level testing functionality is included as part of Premium Virtual User licenses and no longer licensed separately. The information below is for reference only. A Silk Test license is still required though.

The GUI-Level feature introduced in SilkPerformer 2006 R2 requires a GUI-Level license. Currently these can be obtained separately from your Borland sales contact. To check what licenses are available in Silk Performer go to Help | About Silk Performer. This will display the current licenses available:

A single SilkTest license is required in order to create a SilkTest project and build a test case. This single license is provided free to customers with the GUI-Level VUser licenses.

When the GUI-Level load test is started the Controller checks for the necessary licenses. One license will be checked out for each GUI VUser running on Terminal Services, across all agents.

Please note - Windows Terminal Services licenses must be obtained directly from Microsoft.
