LoadComplete stores settings for each test project in files of two different types: project and configuration. This allows you to keep the personal settings of each tester who works with the project (if the project is used by several testers) and separate the data used for test runs (common for all) from the data used to configure the project:
Information that is common for all testers (for example, the number and names of project items) is stored in the single project file with .ltp extension.
Tester-relative settings are stored in a configuration file having the .tcLS extension. The name of this file coincides with the name of the project file, but the extensions differ.
The paths and names of log files that hold testing results are also stored in the configuration file.
The paths, names and various other data about log files that hold testing results are stored in a single .tcLogs file. The name of this file coincides with the name of the project file, but the location and extension differ.
Neither the project, nor the configuration file contains all project data. There are other files that make up the project. For example, the project file contains references to files of project items, which, in turn, may contain references to files of their child elements. The data of the same project item may be stored both in the project and configuration files.
