Error description

  • Steps to reproduce the issue.
    - Create one model file with the path more than 260 character
    long.
    - Give the relative path in Rhapsody by doing edit unit .
    Relative path with more than 260 character is a limitation for
    windows before WINDOWS10. Hence Rhapsody is not accepting the
    the path more than 260 character long too. but the error message
    is not clear here , it should give the proper warning/error
    message.
    Exp:"Cannot load unit 'XYZ' because path to unit file is longer
    than supported by OS"
