Problem:

In CaliberRM 2008 SP1 it is possible to copy the URL of a requirement by selecting the requirement and using the right-click context menu to choose "Copy URL to clipboard". However the link once clicked then opens a new instance of CaliberRM client. This article explains how to open the requirement in the initial instance of CaliberRM client instead of spawning a new instance of it.

Resolution:

The copy URL to clipboard functionality is controlled via the following registry keys:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\alm\shell\open\command]
This contains a string Value:  "C:\Program Files\Borland\CaliberRM\CaliberRM.exe" -openurl %1

Change the last digit from 1 rto 0 to show "C:\Program Files\Borland\CaliberRM\CaliberRM.exe" -openurl %0

This should now open the requirement in the current CaliberRM client window.

This article contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
