POWERVIEW 5.3.1, WIR2XNF 5.x:Error 4 'Couldn't find workview.msg in WDIR'
Change in PowerView 5.3.1 may cause WIR2XNF Error 4:
Couldn't find the message file workview.msg in the local or WDIR directories. WIR2XNF ERROR 4: Internal initialization failure : IWINIT FAILURE 1 Errors and 0 Warnings occurred during processing. Sorry, errors found, could not create output file
In the 5.3.1 release of ViewLogic's PowerView, the location of the workview.msg file is no longer in the <workview install>/standard directory. Because of this, the error message shown above is produced.
The file now resides in <workview install>/standard/531. Adding this path to the WDIR environment variable should solve the problem.
