This issue can be resolved by upgrading to AppScan Source version 184.108.40.206 or by applying a patch.
To upgrade to version 220.127.116.11, follow the instructions in AppScan Source Fix Pack 1 for version 8.7.
To apply the patch, ensure that all AppScan Source client applications have been exited or shut down and then follow these instructions. In addition, ensure that all commands in the instructions are run with administrative credentials.
