First, we run the DXL script against our .DMA file(s). The second is to launch the DoorScope program
Some minor clarifications. DoorScope consists of two executables: the DoorScope ETL tool and the DoorScope viewer. The ETL tool works together with the DXL script. You run the DXL in a DOORS client, either from within a module or from the DOORS explorer. The further produces one dsdx. The latter as many modules as are contained in the selected folder (including subfolders). By the way the DXL script operates directly on the DOORS database, not on DMA files.
The DSDX files reside in a folder (we are unclear of the location of the DSDX repository ???).
The folder where the DSDX are put can be configured from within the ETL tool (see menues).
Clicking "Open" in the dialog box coverts the DSDX file to DSDB
When you start DoorScope, you first see a file selector box. Either select an existing DSDB or simply type a name of a new one which then will be created in the selected folder when pressing the "open" button. Here is a tutorial which guides you through these steps: http://doorscope.ch/Tutorial%20-%20How%20to%20create%20a%20new%20repository%20and%20i mport%20documents.pdf.
DoorScope works extensively with context menus (right click). The DSDX are imported by the context menu command "Import Document".
Hope this helps.
