Attempts to open an IBM Rational Performance Tester report after copying the project backup from a network drive results in the error "Could not open the editor : not a valid Rational Performance Tester result".


Unable to open the RPT report after re-importing the project back from network drive.

The report tab will have the following error message :

"Could not open the editor: Selected result is not a valid Rational Performance Tester result and thus cannot be opened in this Manner".

Note: Report tab will have the following type of file name:

for example if <testscript> is the name of the RPT script <testscript_1369888601887.trcmxmi>


The dependent files may not be available immediately after the project is imported and gets created during the re-launch.
