I am trying to get my hands on Rational tools again and I have encountered a unique problem. One of the online downloaded manuals has asked me to install the Classics Online sample application. That was easy, problem was connecting to the Sample Repository. According to the manual, it says that a sample repository is installed when I install the sample application. However I am not able to find the ClassicsRepository path. I tried googling for this, and ended up with a similar post out here but no remedies were mentioned.
Thanks for the reply, but I did the exact thing as you have mentioned in your reply (i.e. Selecting Start --> Rational Software --> Rational Test --> Setup Rational Test Samples and select Classics Online from the list of install options).
But, Connecting to the sample Repository was the problem. The manual mentioned that a sample Rational repository is installed when I installed the sample application.
However the instruction say to open Rational Adminstrator -> Click File -> Connect->Select ClassicsResporitory. However I am not able to do that because Adminstrator won't allow me to click on connect unless there is a project created?? Besides I couldn't even find that ClassicsRepository path.
It seems to me that the sample repository that should have been installed is not actually there.
When you select Connect, it does not pop a New Project dialog with Project Name and Project Location?
Try clicking the Register Button and searching for C:\Classics\Projects\Webshop.rsp
This will connect you to the project.
Select the webshop.rsp file and select Open. If you cannot locate the Webshop.rsp, then it is not installed in the default location. Try a search for *.rsp on all hard drives and see what it returns. Otherwise, it may have been installed on a file share.

I know this sounds wierd, but well, theres no webshop.rsp file installed. It cudn't have installed elsewhere because, I downloaded the trial version from Rational site and am installing it on my standalone pc.
