Why do I Get the error message "Error: Function SYS_Kill is not supported on Microsoft Windows XP" when trying to use the SYS_Kill function to kill a process?
This error occurs due to this not being a supported function on any Windows platform. The Online Help states "SYS_Kill is supported only on UNIX systems."
Similar functionality is available in the Windows XP OS with the "Taskkill" command. This will allow you to kill one or more XP processes depending on the parameters passed. It can be invoked from SilkTest using the SYS_Execute() function. Further information can be found at
For other Microsoft operating systems there are similar commands contained in the various resource kits and third party commandline tools.
