How do I attach further files to execution results in SilkCentral Test Manager?

ANSWER
----------------------------------
It is not possible to add additional files to the results of an execution run. The files which are attached to the results are those generated in the same directory from where the test definition is executed on the execution server. If your test definition generates additional files and you would like those to be attached to the results you must ensure that they are generated in the same folder from which the test definition is executed.

For Example.
A SilkTest Test Definition takes a screenshot and saves it to some set directory. When the results are collected by SilkCentral the "Files" tab of the Results dialog will look like:


As you can see from the above only the SilkTest results file was collected. If you look at the code for capturing the screenshot in the SilkTest script it looks like:

Desktop.CaptureBitmap("C:\ScreenShots\testBitmap.bmp")


The screenshot is saved to the directory "C:\ScreenShots\", in order to have the screen shot generated in the same location from where the test definition is executed, therefore the script in your source control system should be edited to look like:

Desktop.CaptureBitmap("testBitmap.bmp")


Now the screenshot will be generated in the same directory as the test definition. If you now execute your SilkTest test definition from SilkCentral Test Manager again you should now see your additional files attached as follows:
