Issue:

You receive a similar error at the command prompt:

ISOGEN directory names are limited to 80 characters.

ISOGEN file paths are limited to 100 characters.

Create a shorter name.

Causes:

ISOGEN still relies on DOS 8.3 naming conventions. The path can not be too long and must not have any spaces in its name.

Solution:

Create a shorter name. Start by figuring out if you can rename some of the directories to be a shorter name. Then try to map a drive letter to the ISOGEN directory so the path isnt so long.

Change this (Total Count 130):

\\LONG_SERVER_NAME\LONG_SHARE_NAME\LONG_PROJECT_NAME\01c_ISOGEN\ECE_Demo\ECE-Fab-PartNumbers\Drawings\AREA_100_Piping-200ISO01.DWG

To this (Total Count 58):

I:\ISOGEN\Fab-PartNO\Drawings\AREA_100_Piping-200ISO01.DWG


In I-Configure you will need to ensure you have UNC pathing turned off:


Notes:

Make sure you do not have any spaces in your directory names.
