  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When the Multiple Job Compile option from Tools menu,
    an error screen appears (DSRepos.SetParamsFromStr: Internal
    Error - Error accessing file containing commandline. ()). The
    error screen is attached.
    
    Then the Attach to Project Screen appears again as we haven?t
    been connected yet. In the Project field didn?t appear
    <EngineName>/<ProjectName>. Instead of that appears something
    like: <ProjectName> -F C:\Documents and Settings.....
    <FileName.tmp>
    
    If we do not change the Project field the following error screen
    appears and the Attach to Project Screen is closed.  (Error
    calling subroutine... connection is broken (81002))
    
    If we click in the right arrow to select the project and we
    choose the correct one, then the Multiple Job Compile screen
    appears and everything works fine.
    

Local fix

  • On the client machine:
    
    - Make a new temporary directory, such as C:\tmp (if it does not
    already exist).
    
    - Ensure all users have access to that directory.
    
    - On the system properties / advanced tab, set or add a user and
    system environment variable TMP with the name of the directory
    chosen above, eg C:\tmp. Record previous settings (if any) in
    case they want to back out this change for any reason.
    
    - NOTE: In the case of multi-user machines where more than one
    user is logged on at once, you may choose to make a separate
    directory for each user, and set only the user environment
    variable.
    
    - Reboot the machine.
    

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    On a windows system that has 8.3 file naming disabled the code
    that launches the Multi-Job Compiler can fail
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    On a windows system that has 8.3 file naming disabled the code
    that launches the Multi-Job Compiler from the Designer can fail.
    
    ****************************************************************
    RECOMMENDATION:
    Apply the patch if affected
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code that launches the Multi-job compiler constructs a
    command line that references a file in the user's  temporary
    dircetory. If 8.3 file naming is not allowed then a path
    containing spaces is used and the command line is malformed.
    Patch modifies this code to construct a valid command line even
    if the path contains spaces.
