The default(minimal) Smart Client Appliocation fails to build. Project Template Wizard generates an error message early on that there was a problem creating sub project 'Infrastructure.Interface'.The specified path or file name or both were more than 260 characters. Why doesn't this work? How do I fix it? Why is the path limited to 260 characters? Was this tested before it was released? How do I build a Smart Client Application in VSTS 2005?

The 260 characters limit is set by the OS. This problem is caused because when creating the solution, the full path of one or more files in the solution are more than 260 characters.

Please, try creating the solution in a shorter path.

Paul Harrington explains how a project max path and solution name length is calculated in Visual Studio.
