How to change the scripting language from javascript to phython?

We have an extensive test suite with many tests projects. They are all keyword tests. There is no scripts in the tests but when the suite is made the language that was chosen was JavaScript. I would like to change it to python.

You can not change a project's scripting language after the fact.


You will have to create a new project. You might be able to copy your existing keyword test files to the new project however (they're just XML files) and then add them as existing items in TestComplete
