Error description

  • Attempts to load a project in 8.6 fail with no error message.
    The project can be opened RIT version 8.5.
    
    The symptom is that RIT disappears from your screen and you see
    GHTester.exe running in the background.
    
    This is caused by the GHP project file not containing a valid
    permissionsSettings element.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    1. Create a new project in 8.6.0 or newer.
    2. Edit the GHP file in the top-level folder and copy the
    permissionsSettings element just before the last line:
    
        <permissionsSettings autoLogin="true" host="myHost"
    permFactId="ldap.permissions.factory.none" port="389"
    pswd="XXXXXXXXXXX"/>
    </_c>
    3. Terminate any existing GHTester.exe processes.
    4. Start RIT and select the project.

Problem conclusion

  • This problem was caused by Rational Integration Tester not
    properly handling a missing/incomplete permissionSettings
    element in the project file.  This problem has been resolved in
    version 8.6.0.3 and projects will open correctly.
