If using agents in my COM / ADO test do I need to have my client software installed on my agent machine ?
Yes, as we are dealing with the COM application, the COM client objects need to be
installed on the agent machine for testing. SilkPerformer requires only the COM components installed on the agent for use in the test, therefore if you have some basic client install of your application then this can be used instead.
It is worth noting that you need to add any type libraries or files containing type libraries to the project"s data files so that they are available to the agent also. If you are experiencing any problems with running COM tests on agent machines then contact Support.
