Here is the problem when opening a simple 3D model file:
Has anyone seen something like this? Would you have some suggestions how to debug this?
If a variable resolves to a folder location then everything in the folder will be downloaded by the managed workspace including all versions. You can get around this by specifying a file extension (e.g. MS_CELL = folder\*.cel). With the extension, only the current file version will be downloaded (as will all *.cel files in that folder).
Unfortunately, some variables only resolve to folders (OpenPlant Modeler has many of these as do other applications)
We use a combination of this and the exclude rules to manage what is copied down.
Dave, We also note this issue, it presented itself when there were numerous files in the folder set to a variable. This needs to be fixed!
There are a variety of folder level variables that should not-and historically have not copied out files. Agree with you, this is not a viable scenario to add every folder variable to the exclude for copy-out list.
