Applies to:Hyperion Financial Management - Version: 188.8.131.52.00 to 184.108.40.206.00 - Release: 11.1 to 11.1
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This is due to an OPatch issue commonly seen whenever internationalization support (i.e. non-English language translation) is triggered in OPatch, due to a bug.
Internationalization can be triggered by running OPatch on a non-English/US version of Windows, or when the user impersonated to execute OPatch has Regional Settings set to non-English/US values.
Once that happens, most OPatch output text will be translated to a non-English language. OPatch will then lookup the value of parameter FROM_LOCATION_CD_LABEL (which is undefined in EPM / Hyperion installations) and try to use it.
