I have recently encounterd a problem using Silk Test V3. When I record selecting a Menu Item it correctly records eg. Product.File.Exit.Pick()
But when I play it back it just selects the File Menu and fails to select Exit. The File Menu is not dropped, it is just highlighted.
The application is written in Visual C++ and is running on NT 4.
A couple if the menu items to work but that is about 2 out of 15 items. I can work around the problem using the menu short cut keys but would prefer to be simulating using the mouse in some test cases. Any ideas?

An application developed using Dotnet. and 1000 cases recorded for this application.
All was working fine until...one fine day...
Some one changed the namespaces which are used by this application. The scripts have started failing because it is as good as having a new window or a panel in the application.
Obviously, Silk does not recongnise this window.
