Installing a Windows Execution Server

Install an execution server on each point of presence (POP) that you want to use as a remote Silk Central execution server. The execution server executes Silk Central tests on remote computers.

  1. In the Silk Central menu, click Help > Tools > Windows Execution Server and download the Windows execution server package.
  2. Locate and double-click the Silk Central executable file.
    The InstallShield wizard opens.
  3. Follow the instructions on the Installation Wizard.
  4. Click Finish to complete the installation.
    Note: If the InstallShield wizard fails to update a file during the installation because a system library is locked by Windows, or if the InstallShield wizard detects that the system must be restarted, you are prompted to restart your computer. If you do not restart your computer, you might experience problems when accessing Silk Central.
