"Read CSV operator not working with URL?"

Hi all,

I'm using RM 5.2.001, 32 bit on a Windows 7 SP1. When I try to get some data from the internet (http://archive.ics.uci.edu/ml/machine-learning-databases/ecoli/ecoli.data) with the "Read CSV" operator, the following error is reported:

The file C:\users\lucian\http://archive.ics.uci.edu/ml/machine-learning-databases/ecoli/ecoli.data does not exist.

What can I do? I I use a read URL operator, when I reopen the project I am warned that "read URL" is deprecated and replaced by "Read CSV" - which does not work. Trying to read the data with "Read CSV" and by using the wizard crashes with a similar error.

Thanks in advance,

    the "Read URL" operator should have been replaced by the new csv operator, however currently it cannot handle online csv files (which is a very rare use case, I might add). Therefore until this is properly dealt with, we have removed the deprecated annotation from the Read URL operator for the time being and your process should work again with the next RM release.
