Exporting Projects

  1. From the Silk Performer menu bar, select File > Export Project . The Export Project dialog appears.
  2. In the Export location area, specify the location to which you want to export the current project. If you want to export all the project files to a directory, specify the directory name. If you want to export all the files to a ZIP archive, specify the archive name. Click [...] to the right of the field to locate the directory or file where the project is to be exported.
  3. Select the ZIP to single archive file option to export all files that belong to your current project to a ZIP archive. This is useful when you want to backup your project or when you want to send a copy of your project to someone.
  4. Select the Open in Windows Explorer after export check box to have the folder in the export location open automatically in Windows Explorer after an export. This provides you with quick access to the project file after the export, without having to navigate to find the directory where the file is stored.
  5. In the Options area, select the Include results files of all tests option to export the results of all tests that belong to this project (the results of all TryScript tests, baseline tests, and actual tests). If you disable this option, only the results of the most recent TryScript test will be exported.
  6. Select the Protect ZIP file with password option to protect the export file (LTZ) with a password. This is useful when your project contains confidential data (for example, user names and passwords for the application you are testing). If you select this option, enter a password and confirm it.
  7. Select the Include a system diagnostic report check box to include a diagnostic report with the export. This report lists the processors in the computer, the name and version of the operating system, and information regarding the drives, memory, services, and drivers. Relevant information from the Windows registry is also included.
  8. Click OK. Silk Performer then exports the project and displays the progress of packing all relevant files into a ZIP archive in a status bar.
