Error description

  • DOORS has a 500 character limitation on registry strings. This
    can affect users with long/multiple DXL addins paths.
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    Create a inc file in a DXL layout attribute.
    Add the reg key in the regedit OS with less than 500 characters
    in the path and there is no problem
    Change that reg key to 500 characters or more and a DXL error
    comes up saying that the inc file cannot be found.
    
    Workarounds:
     - Merge multiple addins dir
     - Shorten the paths.
