How can SilkTest run on Windows OS if the user account does not have Administrator Privileges?

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:

  • winnt\system32\qaphooks.dll
  • winnt\system32\qapabort.dll
  • winnt\system32\captdll.dll
  • winnt\system32\qapjarex.dll
  • SilkTest installation directory\qaphlpr.dll

To add user-level privileges, complete the following procedure for each of the files:

  1. Navigate to the file in Windows Explorer, right-click and select Properties.
  2. On the Properties dialog, select the Security tab and then click the Add button.
  3. In the Look in field, make sure the computer name is listed, select Users in the list below, click Add, and then click OK.
