Please help me solve this error 260 char

I faced this error message:
“The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters.”

Hello @airwaveexporter ,

This is usually a Windows OS limitation, if is about local files/directories.
Can you post a screenshot or explain better from were you get the issue?

If its about the file path, you should make it somehow shorter.


Hi @airwaveexporter

@wasea is correct, this error is due to length of file path of xaml that are getting invoked are long and exceeding the limit.
if you are are using a network drive to access the files, try mapping the drive to local machine and change the file paths accordingly

You will need to make a registry edit (administrator permissions needed)
