I am trying to use Selenium RC but I keep getting this error whenever I start the server:

"HTML suite exception seen: java.lang.RuntimeException: sessionId 7643 doesn't exist; perhaps this session w as already stopped?"

The command I use is:

java -jar C:\selenium-remote-control-1.0.3\selenium-server-1.0.3\selenium-server.jar -multiwindow -htmlSuite "*iexplore" "" "C:\TEMP\Selenium Tests\TestSuite1.html" "C:\TEMP\Selenium Tests\results.html"

However with the same command if I change *iexplore to *firefox then it works.

I need to run the test with Internet Explorer. Any ideas how I can get it working?

go back to SRC 1.01 and you'll be able to run it.

I installed SRC1.01 in a c:\src101 directory, and SRC1.03 in a c:\SRC directory.

Just make sure everything points to the right places and it will work for both browsers in their respective versions.
