Error description

  • Headline:
    Rhapsody crashes when loading Activity Diagram, due to illegal
    characters/values in unit file(s).
    Abstract:
    Attempts to load an Activity Diagram, either by double-clicking
    on it or placing the mouse pointer over it, results in a crash.
    Description:
    It has been observed that When trying to open/view an Activity
    Diagram, whose unit information contains illegal
    characters/values (say for the m_transform entry); Rhapsody
    crashes without and informatory message. Neither does Rhapsody
    perform any check on such corrupt information, prior to  loading
    the model / unit / diagram.
    The problem is due to the presence of '+e' characters in the
    m_transform value (in Default.sbs) for the join connector in the
    activity diagram.
    Workaround:
    Delete the '+e' characters in the m_transform value, save the
    file.
