Error description

  • Abstract:
    
    Attempts to start the product might result in an error message
    which prevents the product from starting if too long an interval
    passes before choosing a workspace location.
    
    Problem:
    
    You might see an error such as the following if you wait more
    than 7 minutes to select the workspace location:
    
    'Could not launch the product because the specified workspace
    cannot be created. The specified workspace directory is either
    invalid or read-only.'
    
    Local fix:
    
    No known workaround except to select the desired workspace
    without significant delay.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • A background task is scheduled to run 7 minutes after the
    product starts (before the workspace is selected) to send any
    previously generated error reports to IBM.  If this task runs
    before the workspace is selected then the default workspace is
    used and the product session is initialized to use this
    workspace.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The background task to send old error reports to IBM will be
    scheduled to run after the workspace is selected.
    The fix for this APAR is included in Rational Application
    Developer version 8.5.5 and 9.0.
