User is running a distribution job, and the distribution part fails with error "index was outside the bounds of the array"
The problem was that the path of the document contained a "/" in the name of one of the folders. This caused distribution to think it was two separate folders. This can also happen if the "/" is in the description of the folder.
Changing the name of the folder to not contain that character, allowed the job to complete successfully.
note that \ or / is not a supported character in folder names and can cause other issues as well:(from PW help file)Note: For legacy reasons ProjectWise will allow you to create a folder name that contains the "\" character. However, "\" is an invalid character in folder names in the operating system, therefore if you export a ProjectWise folder that contains "\" in the name, it will split the folders in two, the latter becoming a subfolder of the former (if the folder name is DGNS\DWGS, after export DWGS will become a subfolder of DGNS on the local file system).
