this message pops up whenever a page you are currently recording on opens some new window. This new window is then contained within the recorder so you can easily record your actions on it. If you want to close the window, you can hit the "Close this page" link and the window should be closed and you should be able to continue recording in the previous one. Just confirm that "Close browser window" action is recorded in the timeline. If the action was recorder successfully the window should be closed during the playback. If I misunderstood your question or issue please let me know, also in that case could you please provide some basic workflow how are you recording your web application.
The workflow for this is:
Paste in the page click record it loads the login page, I sign in, I then select the page I want to load, Then the new page loads(This is where I get the pop up listed above). This is where the issue comes into play.
If I click 'dismiss this message' and click stop on the recording and click play back it just hangs at the last step. I have also clicked close this page on the recording then clicked stop on the recording and played back and it just hangs on the last step. I have also not clicked anything clicked stop on the recording then played it back and it hangs on the last step.
The intial page uses adobe flash and when you select the page you want to load it launches an html page, the html page is where I get the "This page opened in a new window." message that seems to be causing the issues. I have made recodring for other websites this is the first time I have experienced the playback locking up on a step during playback.
Can I recommend downloading the latest WPM 2.0 release from your customer portal and giving that a try. There's no requirement to upgrade your production install of SeUM if you don't want. You can install WPM 2.0 on a lab machine for 30 days simply for testing. What you're really testing is if the latest Recorder version suffers the same issue as v1.5.
