Error description

  • Steps to reproduce:
    ============
    1> Make sure that the option 'Disable automatic creation of link
    modules' on the DOORS DB Properties - General Tab is not
    enabled.
    2> There doesn't exist a default 'DOORS Link' Module in the
    project
    3> Create two Modules A and B either in same Project or in
    different Projects
    4> Create few Objects in both the Modules
    5> Form Module A, access Tools - Functions - Copy Objects and
    select Module B as Target. Make sure to choose option 'Create
    Links', the direction can be any.
    6> Click on Apply.
    
    You'd notice the following message: 'Creation of default link
    modules has been disabled, only an Administrator or Database
    Manager can re-enable creation'.
    
    Upon clicking on OK, a new message stating 'Cannot create link
    from source object XX to YY through link module 'DOORS Links'.
    Link module 'DOORS Links' doesn't exist.
    
    Only the Object would have been copied over and no link would
    have been created.
    
    If you now go ahead and Enable the option 'Disable automatic
    creation of link modules' the default link module 'DOORS Links'
    would get created and links too would be created.
