After vicmarcal's response below your comment it actually is that I missed the regressions table and therefore don't know :D But I wrote it to the column to the right (Tested in <revision>: Installs. Application fails to start with the error).

Anyway, the Flash Player update was done back in November 2011, and it only a change to the description of the failure. It seems we haven't ever had a working revision for Flash Player in Testing Central's Golden Apps.

EDIT - In my testing, I've noticed that sometimes the window on top (the one I'm working with) isn't colored as the Active window. Also, I had Task Manager running with Always On Top checked, and when a new window opened, it covered Task Manager. I searched "active focus window" in Jira, without quotes, for CORE bugs that are Open, In Progress, or Reopened, and I didn't find anything related. Is anyone else seeing this behavior? It's not consistent, but only happens occasionally.

EDIT 2 - After testing various browsers and plugins, the system locked up. I rebooted it (VBox) and mouse integration no longer worked. Weird. Anyone ever experience this?
Bizzare. After more tests and crashes and reboots, mouse integration was working again and Active window & window layering were all properly working again. Has anyone encountered this in ReactOS?

I was wondering, the automated tests framework that was in progress (the ona that tested programs), does work using a VM?
I was thinking, it doesn't recollect graphic glitches, but if they are present, a screenshot from the host OS should show them, and one from the VM should show if it's related to video output or to the actual rendering (I may be wrong, this is just a dirty assumption of how it works). Couldn't it be scripted into it to take a screenshot after actions like resizing and restoring and such, to have some of this to check from the automated runs (thus, making easier to report these without actually having to install, through, for example, an automated upload of the images to a wiki and users checking those images)?

The script does screenshots when the test hangs or crashes. That way we can detect what was happening at that time. But relying in the screenshots is not the best way to test ReactOS ;)

I think it could help to detect some graphical bugs.

I would rely in testers to detect and report those bugs...
But anything to improve Reactos is fine for me :)

Of course testers should report it (making an image processing software is not only very hard, but overkill IMO), but why lose time in running again the exact same app an automated framework ran just to check for the grapich glitches, when you can check them out as a result of the other run, and try different apps while testing manually.

Hey oswetto, would you update the Testing Central page? You can login with your forum account, and update the Last Working Revision column. You can update the Filzip status to indicate that it crashes.

This Samba-TNG thing looks a bit "linux only"... Is there anywhere a windows version?

Edit: Yupp, at least smbclient seems to work. I assume you mean: http://download.samba-tng.org/tng/snapshot/win32/
