The Rational Functional Tester Recorder does not record on Security Warning windows

Technote (troubleshooting)


The Security Warning window is a confirmation window that is displayed when you try to Install a certificate in Trusted Root Certification Authorities.


The Security Warning window originates from a system process called CSRSS.exe. It is not possible to enable the CSRSS process due to access restrictions.

Diagnosing the problem

Use the Process Explorer tool to find out whether the Security Warning window is a CSRSS process.

Resolving the problem

Use scripting to playback controls in a CSRSS process window. For example, if the Security Warning window has two buttons, Yes and No , and you want to click No, you can use the following sample code to find the Window and click No.

//Get all the top windows
IWindow[] topWindows =getTopWindows();

for (int i = 0; i < topWindows.length; i++) {
//Search for the desired window
if(topWindows[i].getText().equalsIgnoreCase("Security Warning")){
//Get all the children of the Security Warning Window
IWindow[] children = topWindows[i].getChildren();
for (int j = 0; j < children.length; j++) {
//Search for the control to click
if (children[j].getText().equals("&No")) {
//perform action
