Error: “Tool #31: Field_11: Starting running <FILEPATH> is not a number”

 

Environment Details

 

Runner tool is not able to run workflow which is stored in a path containing double-byte characters. The following errors will occur:

 
ConvError: Runner (1): Tool #31: Field_11: Started running <FILEPATH> is not a number.
ConvError: Runner (1): Tool #23 ModuleFullPath: "<FILEPATH_WORKFLOW_NAME>" could not be fully converted from a WString to a String.

The second error can be rectified by changing the data type of the fields in the Formula tool (Id: 23) in the CReW_Runner macro to "V_WString".

After this, the first error will still show:
 
 ConvError: Runner (1): Tool #31: Field_11: Started running <FILEPATH> is not a number.
