Error when running Jobs with names containing more than 256 characters

Problem Description

When running a Studio Job with an extended file name, it fails with the following error message:

Execution failed : Job execution failed. [Cannot run program "C:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.8.0_201/bin/java.exe" (in directory C:\Talend7.1\Workspace362019\.repositories\1734737724\branches\Development1\29\2019\DSE_DATAMARTS\poms\jobs\process\Staging\Flat_File_Load\Reference_Flat_Files\Working_and_Staging_Load_Reference_Flat_Files\staging_load_major_*****_***_0.3\src\main\ext-resources"): CreateProcess error=267, The directory name is invalid]


Root Cause

The name of the Job exceeds the 256 character limit.



There are two possible solutions:

  • Move the Job from the nested folders to the main folder under the Process directory, as shown below:
  • Rename the Job and make sure you don't exceed the character limit.
