Why SilkTest GUI does not launch when running SilkTest using CYGWIN SSH from UNIX machines?

Why SilkTest GUI does not launch when running SilkTest using CYGWIN SSH from UNIX machines?

When using SSH to launch and playback testcases from UNIX machines please ensure that you have enabled the following settings:

  1. Open Services from Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Administrative tools
  2. Double click the "CYGWIN ssh" service
  3. Go to tab "LogOn"
  4. Check the option "Allow service to interact with desktop"
  5. Restart the service

Without the above settings the SilkTest process will continue to run as a background process (can be viewed from Task Manager) and the GUI will not show up.

For steps to remotely execute SilkTest from UNIX using SSH please refer to How can I remotely execute SilkTest on a windows machine from Sun Solaris using CYGWIN SSH?
