Hello Mårten,

QF-Test does a lot of automatic synchronization to handle such cases
and in general it works well. This includes synchronizing with the
respective event queue, waiting for components to become available and
enabled, handling glass panes etc.

If your target machine's load is so high that the default timeouts are
not sufficient, the first thing you should try is to increase those
timeouts via >>Edit->Options<<. The settings are under
Replay->Timeouts, see

for details.

If that's not sufficient you can add specific timeouts at critical
points, e.g. a 'Wait for component' node or a 'Check' node with a
timeout. For more specific help, please send a run-log showing typical
problems to our support, not to the mailing list.

Working with delays is a last resort. Recording with delays is not
supported, but you can either use the replace dialog to quickly set
delays on multiple nodes, or - preferably - experiment with the
default delay options under Replay->Delays.

Best regards,
