    Hello Radha,

        I'm sorry to hear you are experiencing this problem. 
    First off I assume you've checked and  your IE7 is otherwise working just fine, correct?

    Consider upgrading to IE8. In principle we support IE7 but I would recommend that you upgrade to IE8 if this is not a problem for you. This might solve the issue.

     Here are some thing you could try if upgrading (if it was possible for you) didn't solve it: 
    Try initiating your recording using the debug record feature (open your test, then click on the Help tab, then click the Record button on the Help tab. Let me know how this goes.

    Also, if you haven't tried to, you may consider attempting to record by doing the following:
    1. Open your project and test as you normally would
    2. You should be on the Record Tab. On the Record Tab is the Record Button. The record button has a small arrow underneath it that points down (the provided screen shot shows the button, with a blue/red arrow pointing towards it). Click the arrow beneath the record button.
    3. This will provide a list of open browser windows. Choosing one should launch the recorder within the specified open browser window.

    Please let us know whether any of this worked so we can assist with getting you up-and-running as soon as possible.

    All the best,

    I have the same problem ("Project is offline or uncontrolled; making files writeable") when I'm trying record test of WPF application.
    Is IE8 necessary to recording?

    Telerik Test Studio ver. 2011.1.1.502.0, WinXP, IE7

    Hello Marcin,
        Internet Explorer is not related to testing WPF application. Check this section of the user guide:
    http://www.telerik.com/automated-testing-tools/support/documentation/user-guide/create-a-test-standalone/wpf-test.aspx

    All the best,

    I'll try again, but...
    "I have the same problem ("Project is offline or uncontrolled; making files writeable") when I'm trying record test of WPF application."
    User guide didn't help me...

    If IE is not related to testing WPF application, then:
    a) my project is offline
    or
    b) project is uncontrolled
    Hmmmm... but, what this mean? My project isn't: under version controll, TFS, CSV, SVN etc.

    Hello Marcin,

    Can you successfully record and execute a Web Test? Or are you only seeing this error with a WPF Test? Or do both not work? IE7 is required for Web Tests, however we recommend IE8+.

    Please confirm your WPF application does not have a non-WPF component, an embedded browser, and it does not use click-once deployment. These are not currently supported.

    All the best,
    Anthony
