What causes "AI exception handler Window OS errno=-35 database path or file name too long OS erno = 5,DLL; RDM330" error when launching Concept 2.5 SR1,SR2 or 2.6 SR1, SR2?

A Technical problem has come to our attention that concerns users who utilize Automatic Updates from Microsoft on O.S. Windows 2000 or WinXP SP2.
Launching Concept issues the following error:

"AI exception handler" Window
OS errno=-35 database path or file name too long"
OS erno = 5, DLL; RDM330

On closing Concept:

Concept Window
Error ID AI-11343 -35 database file/path name too long

This error indicates that certain Service Updates from Microsoft have interacted with the Concept Install. These Microsoft patches are typically installed through Automatic Update.

The interim fix is to go to Control Panel - Add/Remove Programs and uninstall KB840987 and KB841533.
