Hi,

This is the first time we installed the RC. As per your instruction, we are able to run the server. We have no clue how to use RC to record/playback or run script. Can you please recommend a document to follow ?

regards,

It is not necessary to extract the Selenium.jar file. It can be pasted as it is under C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_03\bin as you said. This is how I got it to work for me at least.
