Opening an Existing Project

You can open a Silk Test Classic project as well as open an archived Silk Test Classic project. You can also open a Silk Test Classic project or archived project through the command line.

To open an existing project:

  1. Click File > Open Project or click Open Project > Open Project on the basic workflow bar. If you already have a project open, a dialog box opens informing you that the open project will be closed. If you associated Silk Test Classic file types with Silk Test Classic during installation, then you can open a Silk Test Classic project or package by double-clicking the .vtp or .stp file.
  2. If you are opening a packaged Silk Test Classic project, which means an .stp file, you must perform the following steps:
    1. Indicate into what directory you want to unpack the project in the Base path text box. The files are unpacked to the directory you indicate in the Base path text box.
    2. Enter a password into the Password text box if the archived Silk Test Classic project was saved with a password.

      If you open a package by double-clicking the .stp file, the base path is the directory that contains the .stp file.

      When you select a location for unpacking the archive on the Open Project dialog box, Silk Test Classic uses that directory path, the base path, to substitute for the drive and root directory in the Use Path and Use Files paths.

      The Base path and Password text boxes are enabled only if you are opening an .stp file.

  3. On the Open Project dialog box, specify the project that you want to open, and then click Open. If you open a project file (.vtp) by clicking File > Open command, the projectname.vtp file will open in the 4Test Editor, but the project and its associated settings will not be loaded. Projects do not display in the recently opened files list. To close all open files within a project, click Window > Close All.
