When you configure an application to be tested in Rational Functional Tester, it doesn’t save it at the project level, but only on the local machine. This is a pain. Everyone on the team needs to follow a setup routine everytime a new version of the app comes out (this may not always be true, but it usually is), and someone always gets it wrong. Very annoying. What would make the whole process easier is if that configuration would be at the project level, but it’s not. Enough complaining.
A fix is for one person to maintain the application configuration, and send everyone on the team a copy once it’s been updated. The config file lives here:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\IBM\RFT\configuration\configurations.rftcfg
If you can’t find it there, the directory is set in the registry under the following details:
Path: “My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Rational Software\Rational Test\8″
String: “Rational FT Configuration Directory”
The value in that string is the directory that the “configurations.rftcfg” file should be in.
