Is it possible to set the extensions from the command line launcher?

Is it possible to set the extensions from the command line launcher?

You cannot set the extensions from the command line in any fashion. However, it is possible to use SilkTest to configure itself in a limited fashion. You can create a testcase that will access Start | Programs | Borland | SilkTest | Extension Enabler and then enter the name of the application (if required) and will set the required extensions. This would be most useful for remote testing but although this will work in the majority of cases, it is recommended that the extensions are enabled manually whenever possible as you can then check that it has been successful.

For example, where "myprojectfile.exe" is a Java application:

[-] testcase Test1 () appstate none
[ ] Taskbar.SetActive ()
[ ] Taskbar.Start.Click ()
[ ] DialogBox3.SetActive ()
[ ] DialogBox3.MenuSite1.ToolBar1.Programs.Click ()
[ ] DialogBox3.SetActive ()
[ ] DialogBox3.MenuSite1.ToolBar1.Borland.Click ()
[ ] DialogBox3.SetActive ()
[ ] DialogBox3.MenuSite1.ToolBar1.SilkTest2008.Click ()
[ ] DialogBox1.SetActive ()
[ ] DialogBox1.MenuSite1.ToolBar1.ExtensionEnabler.Click ()
[ ] ExtensionEnabler.SetActive ()
[ ] ExtensionEnabler.New.Click ()
[ ] ExtensionApplication.SetActive ()
[ ] ExtensionApplication.EnterNameSOfExecutableOr.SetText ("c:\temp\myprojectfile.exe")
[ ] ExtensionApplication.OK.Click ()
[ ] ExtensionEnabler.SetActive ()
[ ] ExtensionEnabler.Application.Select ("myprojectfile.exe")
[ ] ExtensionEnabler.Application.Select ("Java Application")
