When generating reference reports in Modernization Workbench, and error  - Element with key "BEAN" does not exist - is displayed.   How can this be overcome?


The root cause of this problem is a previosuly installed plug-in for SPRING support.

If this plug-in has been used and removed, the element in the Project Options may not have been removed completely.

To overcome the problem...

1. In your WORKSPACE directory, find and inspect the file  OPTIONS.PROJECT.XML  and remove the following line.


2. In your WORKSPACE/OPTIONS directory, seach for any files matching the pattern P*.XML, for example P00001.XML
    Inspect each file and remove the following line....


After these files have been updated, re-run the reference report required.
