Before proceeding: You should have a familiarity with TestArchitect Client and its user interface. Also, observe the following:
  1. Ensure that the TestArchitect Repository Server is running (as indicated by the icon in the Windows notification area). If not, start it up.
  2. Ensure that the TestArchitect Utility Server (which manages the Dashboard application) is running.
Start the Dashboard.
