This article describes how to export your projects to EXE files and how to view exported projects.
Exporting projects to EXE files
This method provides the following advantages:
- You can open the project on any computer that is running Microsoft Windows. You do not have to install Revizto on this computer. This is handy if the project is created in an earlier Revizto version that you no longer use.
- You are not required to have an active Revizto license.
- You are not required to sign in to the project.
This method has the following limitations:
- Only the latest versions of sheets and scenes are stored. The project version history is lost.
- The issue IDs are not stored. However, you can export all issues with their IDs to a separate spreadsheet and use it as a reference when needed.
To export a project to an EXE file:
In the Revizto application, open a project.
At the top of the application window, go to Project > Export to EXE.
If you want to export issues, in the Export Issues list, select Yes.
Enter the file name and click Save.
Wait until the export is completed.
The resulting file is a ZIP archive. It contains the EXE file and some additional files that store project data.
To save a spreadsheet with issue IDs:
At the top of the window, click Issue Tracker.
Open the filter by clicking Filters , and apply the All issues filter.
On the top toolbar, click Export .
Select all issues and then, in the upper-right corner, click Done.
In the Save As dialog, in the Save as type list, select Excel (*.xlsx).
Viewing projects exported to EXE files
A project snapshot is a ZIP file that includes the EXE file and some additional files.
To view a project exported to an EXE file:
Create a new folder on a local hard drive and unpack the ZIP file to this folder.
Do not unpack several project snapshots to the same folder.
Run Revizto5.exe or Revizto.exe. The file name depends on the Revizto version that you used to create the snapshot.
This opens the project in a viewer that is similar to the Revizto application.
