  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • TLOG#51531
    If you use roaming profiles and DOORS, changes may be made to
    profile names as part of normal usage.  When DOORS first
    starts, it writes a LOCALDATA entry to
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Telelogic\DOORS\?version?\Config.
    When the profile name changes, the current LOCALDATA entry is
    invalidated and DOORS will not be able to start -- it will
    report an error similar to the one below and exit:
    Unable to create file in directory 'C:\Documents and
    Settings\?user?\Application
    Data\Telelogic\DOORS\Temp\LD_0a01036' that was specified for
    LOCALDATA
    (the error for versions previous to DOORS 9.0 was slightly
    different)
    

Local fix

  • Delete the LOCALDATA registry entry in
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Telelogic\DOORS\<version>\Config.
    DOORS will create a new one the next time it starts, which will
    reflect the current profile name.
    

Problem summary

  • WHEN THE USER'S PROFILE NAME CHANGES (THIS MAY HAPPEN WHEN USING
    ROAMING PROFILES), DOORS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO START.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect is fixed in DOORS 9.2.0.1.
