Why am I getting an "error 193" when trying to launch an application using the Start method?
In general, this error is generated from Windows when a particular object or path cannot be found e.g. one of the most common causes is looking for the path in the Registry (see Why am I getting error code "193" when I try to Invoke an Application with SilkTest? ) and not getting the full path returned. It is not a SilkTest error or problem. Instead of using the Start method, one successful workround is to use SYS_Execute to call a link(shortcut) to a batch file which itself calls the application under test. It is important that you call a link(shortcut) to the batch file and not the batch file itself, so that SilkTest returns ready to test the application when it is launched - see the SilkTest help files for the behaviour of sys_execute for why this is necessary.
