Automated tests against Internet Explorer browser are failing due to incorrect browser zoom levels causing the object locator positions to become offset. For SilkTest script playback the IE browser zoom level should be set to 100%.
Go to Internet Options > advanced > and in the accessibility area enable the “Reset zoom level for new windows and tabs”. Alternatively you could edit the Internet Explorer registry and set the registry option below from 0 to 1. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Zoom\ResetZoomOnStartup2 After doing this when SilkTest launches IE, the zoom level will be correct, regardless of any different setting used in the previous browser session.
