VuGen allows you to work with .zip file in several ways. The advantages of working with .zip files is that you conserve disk space, and it allows your scripts to be portable. Instead of copying many files from machine to machine, you need to copy only one .zip file.
To open a script stored in a .zip file, select File > Manage Zip Files > Import from Zip File. After you select a .zip file, VuGen prompts you for a location in which to store the unzipped files.
Note: If you import a script from an archive file, if it was archived with runtime files only, you will not be able to regenerate the script to its original recorded state. For details, see How to Regenerate a Vuser Script.
To save the entire script folder as a .zip file, select File > Manage Zip Files > Export to Zip File.
You can indicate whether to save all the files or only the runtime files.
Note: If you export the script with the runtime files only, the user of the imported script will not be able to regenerate the script to its original recorded state.
To create a .zip file and send it as an email attachment, select File > Manage Zip Files > Zip and Email. When you click OK in the Zip and Email dialog box, VuGen compresses the file according to your settings and opens an email compose form with the .zip file as an attachment.
To work from a .zip file, while not expanding or saving the script files, select File > Manage Zip Files > Edit Script in Zip File. When you modify the script and save it, the changes are stored directly in the .zip file.
