They want to use Remote Desktop (RDP protocol) towards machines they want
to test on
With Borlands Silkperformer.
My friend says that the RDP protocol nowadays on WIN SRV 2008 you should be
able to use a tool or script language like VBScript to
In earlier versions of RDP it would have been imposible since what was sent
to client was only small chunks of bitmaps representing the remote machines
windows. i.e justa graphical representation and actually no windows API
According to my friend, then, it would be possible to now get a tool that
Silkperformer could interact with by navigating the actual windows objects,
remotely. Do you know if such tool actually exist?
To me it sounds a bit like sience fiction because there is a lot of VM_*
messages that would probalby to need to be sent down to client from server
over slow network, however solution might not be to send VM_* messages down
to client but instead som sort of deskop-window-object?
I told him about tools like REMOTE and SERVER you use when you
remote debug (with NTSD for example) but he cannot use that he need to
navigate in the GUI with silkperformer.
WINVNC I don't think can navigate thru objects its again only bitmaps
