SUM Path Issue

I am in the process of upgrading my Solution Manager from 7.1 to 7.2. Using the latest SUM tool 1.0 SP21, right off the start I get an error that it cannot find files during the kernel check, See below, I am using SIDADM. I can from windows server, open a command prompt and type in disp+work -v and get results, so my path works. I can cleaned the path, tested the path, just seems like SUM is only grabbing the SYSTEM path and not USER path. So I tried that, added my path to the kernel in the system path. No way! I did find a few oss notes that quote the same error, but no help. Any advice out there?

    Hello Joshua Lacroix,

    Please look in to SAP Note :

    Thank you

    I should now detail my findings on this issue.

    What I found was, the SUM tool must have a character length limit it can read from the system path.

    According to this link

    https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/limitation-to-the-length-of-the-system-path-variable

    it describes the system path length for windows 2008 server.

    My system was well below the character threshold, if I opened a CMD, launched set or path, I could see my complete path along with the path to my kernel. I was under the limitation set by windows. I know this because I could execute kernel commands from my CMD path.

    However, when SUM would launch and read my path, it appears it couldn't read as many characters. I had 2 options, clean my path down in order for SUM to make it to my kernel path or move my kernel path string to the start of the system path. I strongly believe its an issue with the SUM tool, I cant remember my log of the error and how many characters SUM would read, but I know it wasn't very long. I have reproduced it now several times on other servers, and now my fix is to add my kernel lines to the start of the system path.
