11.4 PlanAhead - EXCEPTION:Xdm:ModelImp.c:994:$Id: (...)- Xdm_Exception::CannotReadFile


When I kick off an implementation run from the PlanAhead tool on a Windows machine, Translate completes, but MAP generates the following error:

"EXCEPTION:Xdm:ModelImp.c:994:$Id: ModelImp.c,v 2009/06/16 00:37:40 jdl
   Exp $ - Xdm_Exception::CannotReadFile

NGDBuild was able to find all the files, so the location of the files is correct. What does this error mean?


This is a known issue with the PlanAhead tool when run on Windows; the path length limitation on Windows is the cause of the error.

To work around this issue, reduce the path length to the files.

A more descriptive error message is planned for a future release of the PlanAhead tool.
