For some reason the runlogging file now wants to open in Excel rather than in Notepad. The Test lab version is 11b. How do i corect this? Thank you.

Hello Chuck,

 

This works with later versions of LMS Test.Lab, so I assume 11B would behave the same.  I believe you've changed your default program to open *.txt  files with Excel.  If I change the default program to open *.txt files to be excel, I see this behavior.

 

  • Right click on a file with the *.txt extension (or if your runlogging file has a different extension then select that file type) and select Open With.  If you don't see Open With, try Shift-Right Click.
  • Select Open With, Choose default program. 
  • Select Notpad, Wordpad, or whatever text editor you desire AND turn on the option "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file."
  • Test.Lab will now use this program - you don't even need to restart Test.Lab
