Can a SilkTest .jou file be changed into a .res file?

Can a SilkTest .jou file be changed into a .res file?

The .jou file is a temporary journaling file that SilkTest uses when running a script.

If SilkTest unexpectedly terminates without being able to clean up files open at the time, then the .jou file can be left behind and no results file (.res) will be created.

It is not possible to change a .jou file into a .res file. However, in order to see the errors that may have been returned, it is possible to open the .jou file in notepad and view the errors returned.
