How to view Results if error occurs while trying to open Results

Two files which got affected in displaying Results:
1) Results.xml and 2) GeneralInfo.ini.

Results.xml – contains all the test result data in the structured format. Due to abnormal closing of QTP, some tags in this xml file does not close properly, due to which test result viewer is not able to read it properly.

GeneralInfo.ini – once QTP execution is successfully done, it creates this ini file which initiates the result viewer and contains the required information to populate the result.

So whenever you get such an error, go to your result path (report folder). You will notice that there is no general info file has been created. In case it is there trying opening in notepad. You will find that no data is there. That means you will have to create this file in order to view the result.

Create a txt file in your report folder name it as ‘GeneralInfo.ini’ and Open it in notepad.

Write the text mentioned below –

[General] ‘ini file tag. Keep this intact
Product= ‘name of the product which will be QuickTest Professional
Version = ‘Version of your QTP
Total = ‘the number of total lines in the xml file for result (explained below)
Title= ‘Script Title
OSVersion = ‘version of operating system
TestLocation= ‘Test Path

Parameter ‘Total’ can be retrieved from the incomplete results.xml file.

Open the file in any file editor. Go to the end of the file. Search the first tag which contains from bottom.You will see a value assigned there to rID as in the below piece of xml.
