  • DXL Error when User defined Addins directory has Double Byte
    characters file names in it.
    
    Steps to replicate the issue:

    Client. You'd observe the following error message:
    
    -----------
    -E- DXL: <Line:1> could not open include file (C:\Program Files

    dxl>) (Invalid argument)
    -E- DXL: <Line:1> syntax error
