RE: Record Remote Desktop Session

Hi garecanbp,

Unfortunately I can only confirm that it is not possible to record applications that are running on a remote machine, via RDP.

SilkTest must be running on the same machine as the application under test, in order to hook into its process and load the techdomains that are required for object recognition. Only co-ordinated clicks will be captured when recording against an RDP window, because the application and controls do not exist on the local SilkTest machine.

The only solution is to install SilkTest on the remote machine, RDP into it and run the recorder on the remote system.

Thanks & Regards..
