Opening tests with locked resources

Relevant for: GUI tests only and API tests

The Locked Resources message box opens when you try to open a document that is associated with a locked resource file, such as a locked data table or object repository file.

Open the document as one of the following:

Read-Only (recommended)

Opens the document in read-only mode, enabling you to run it but not make any changes to it.

You can:

  • Save the document under a new name, and then edit the document.

  • Run the document, and choose to save the results file.


Opens the document in read-write mode, enabling you to run and edit it, and save any changes you make to it.

However, any changes to referenced and locked UFT files cannot be saved.

Locked resource files are opened in read-only mode even if the referencing document is opened in read-write mode.
