How can SilkTest run on Windows OS if the user account does not have Administrator Privileges?
A user must have local Administrator Privileges to run SilkTest and SilkTest International on Windows. If SilkTest is installed while logged in as the local Administrator and then a user logs in under a different account, the following error appears: "The application failed to initialise properly (0xc0000022). Click OK to terminate the application. "
To run SilkTest as a user, rather than a local Administrator, user-level privileges must be added to the following files:
- SilkTest installation directory\qaphlpr.dll
To add user-level privileges, complete the following procedure for each of the files:
- Navigate to the file in Windows Explorer, right-click and select Properties.
- On the Properties dialog, select the Security tab and then click the Add button.
- In the Look in field, make sure the computer name is listed, select Users in the list below, click Add, and then click OK.
