SilkTest Support for Metro applications in Windows 8

SilkTest Support for Metro applications in Windows 8


Does SilkTest 13.5 support testing Internet Explorer 10 and other applications running through Metro on Windows 8?



SilkTest does not currently support testing of any appliactions running inside Metro on Windows 8 as these are sandboxed to the extent that SilkTest is unable to communicate with their process.

Users interested in seeing Metro support introduced in a future release can add their contact details and vote for its implementation via the following Feature request:
