    Hi ashutosh 


    i can't help with the ReadyAPI!/SoapUI/Groovy option - but i was wondering about whether you'd accept a workaround?


    Your User Account Control is enabled and this is what's hindering the file Open windows dialogue being generated.  Could you not disable the UAC?  (depends if you have local admin rights or if Policy is forcing it enabled)


    If you can't disable the UAC and the issue is that you lose the drive mapping after restarting your machine - could you not create a login script to automatically map the drive on startup? i.e. create a .bat file (using net use command to map the drive) and stick the .bat file in one of the many startup folders/registry settings.

    Just an option....
