How can we improve Silk Test?

Change Playback Settings in VB.NET Script

SilkTest should be able to change the playback settings in vb.net scripts (e.g. 'Save all information', 'Screen Capture' etc.).

    Agent.SetOption(Options.optionName, ...) only has a small fraction of the options available via the UI. In Silk Test's predecessor, TestPartner, there was the ability to save every single option into a profile and then load the profile programmatically during runtime. The code was simply: Playback.RunEnvironment = "myPlaybackProfile". Why this is no longer possible in Silktest is beyond me. Without the ability to load a playback profile during runtime, VB.NET scripts are no longer machine independent. This becomes a real problem over time as people lose touch with what settings their machines should have and we end up wasting countless hours unnecessarily troubleshooting apparent bugs that are the result of the wrong playback settings.
