After completing a new installation (not an upgrade) of the Rational® RequisitePro® Web components (RequisiteWeb) version 18.104.22.168 on the 64-bit version of Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2, the sample projects are not listed in the Project drop-down menu.
The problem is reproducible in all the x64-bit operating systems (Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2). On these platforms there are two different paths for the installation: "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)". If Rational RequisitePro is installed in the "Program Files (x86)" path, the catalog.txt does not have the correct path to the example projects.
Resolving The Problem
To resolve the problem, edit the catalog.txt file to include the correct path for the sample projects.
Open the catalog.txt file, which is located here by default:
C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\RationalSDLC\RequisitePro\ReqWeb\projects
Change the example project paths from:
C:\Program Files\IBM\RationalSDLC\RequisitePro\samples\Learning_Project-Use_Cases\LEARNING - USE CASES.RQS
C:\Program Files\IBM\RationalSDLC\RequisitePro\samples\Learning_Project-Traditional\LEARNING - TRADITIONAL.rqs
C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\RationalSDLC\RequisitePro\samples\Learning_Project-Use_Cases\LEARNING - USE CASES.RQS
C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\RationalSDLC\RequisitePro\samples\Learning_Project-Traditional\LEARNING - TRADITIONAL.rqs
Save the changes to the catalog.txt file and close it.
