Step by Step scenario
  1. Manage .NET extension 1.1.x in your bases
  2. Launch Cast-MS 
  3. Run analysis for a DotNet application which has WPF/Silverlight
Action Plan

Perform the below actions

  1. This issue has been seen in .NET 1.1.x and will be encountered only when you analyze WPF/Silver light application. This is because in these frameworks we have XAML files which get processed by another tool XamlWpfGenerator.exe present in .NET extension folder. When the executable arguments exceeds 260 chars which is the permissible limit of windows OS then the exception is raised.
  2. Manage 1.0.x extension and run the analysis
  3. If the above steps do not solve your issue contact CAST Technical Support. with the Relevant Input
