Running the Help command (Import/Export tool)

Ensure that you have installed or upgraded your Java Runtime Environment (JRE) to at least version 8, which is necessary to run TAImportExportTool.jar on your Windows machine.


To run the Help command, do the following:

  1. Bring up a command window. You can do this from the Windows Start menu by choosing Run, and then entering cmd.

    The command window opens with a prompt displaying your current directory.

  2. Use the cd command to change your current directory to TA_INSTALL_DIR\binclient\, which is where TAImportExportTool.jar is located.

    For example, type the following command at the prompt, and then press Enter.

    cd "C:\Program Files\LogiGear\TestArchitect\binclient"

    Now the prompt should change to the new directory, e.g., C:\Program Files\LogiGear\TestArchitect\binclient>

  3. Enter either of the following commands, and then press Enter.
