** OBSOLETE ** ALPHA 1.1 COREGEN: Warning: Your directory path <directory_path> should not contain any directory names longer than 8 characters.

Description

Keywords: coregen, core generator, workview office

Urgency: standard

General Description:
COREGEN has a restriction where directory names cannot be
longer than 8 characters.

The Alpha v1.1 versions of COREGEN incorrectly complains about
directory names being longer than 8 characters when all
directory names are already 8 characters in length or less.

Solution

1

The Alpha v1.1 versions of COREGEN may complain about directory
names being longer than 8 characters when all directory names
are already 8 characters in length or less.

COREGEN is including the "\" hierarchy separator in the
character count following the end of the directory name.

This problem has been fixed in version Alpha v3.0.x.

2

With the ALPHA v3.0.x and v1.4.0 versions of COREGen, the
8-character limit continues to be enforced to ensure
compatibility with Foundation Design Manager.
