6.3i iMPACT - Loading files from nested network paths causes "FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities:WinApp.c:657:$Revision..."

Description

General Description: 

iMPACT crashes when loading mcs files from long nested network paths, and the following error occurs: 

 

"FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities:WinApp.c" 

 

For example, adding the ".mcs" file from the following path will generate this error: 

P:\longname_1\longname_2\longname_3\longname_4\longname_5\longname_6\longname_7\longname_8\my_prom_file.mcs

Solution

To work around this issue, limit the directory levels, directory name lengths, and file name length so that the entire string is less than 100 characters. 

 

This problem is resolved in 7.1i iMPACT.
