Windows API-Based Application Support

Silk Test Workbench provides built-in support for testing Microsoft Windows API-based applications. Several objects exist in Microsoft applications that Silk Test Workbench can better recognize if you enable Accessibility. For example, without enabling Accessibility Silk Test Workbench records only basic information about the menu bar in Microsoft Word and the tabs that appear in Internet Explorer versions later than version 7.0. However, with Accessibility enabled, Silk Test Workbench fully recognizes those objects. You can also improve Silk Test Workbench object recognition by defining a new window, if necessary.

For information about new features, supported platforms, and tested versions, refer to the Release Notes.
