Versions: All released versions of DSP and Transform
Issue: The following error is received error when executing a package in Transform:
"The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters.”
Root Cause: This is a Windows operating system limitation. The file path for generated documentation is very long due to the naming convention which includes the entire package name and a date/time stamp.
Solution: There are two options:
1. Navigate to dspMigrate > Console > Advanced Configuration > Parameters > Transform tab and uncheck the checkbox for “Generate Documentation.”
2. If documentation is required, the default root documentation path can be shorten by navigating to Admin > DataSources > vertical view of DSW_Documentation_FilePath datasource. Shortening this path will allow the documentation creation to be generated with a path that is within the Windows limitation.
