System.IO.PathTooLongException

description

I am using XP and MS Visual Web Developer Express
 
When I try to install, I get the following error.
 
Install Error : System.IO.PathTooLongException: C:\Documents and Settings\dsease89\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VWDExpress\10.0\Extensions\Josip Budimir\CslaExtension\1.0.1\ItemTemplates\ADONETArtifactGenerator_CslaExtension.ItemTemplate.zip: ADONETArtifactGenerator_CslaExtension.ItemTemplate.vstemplate
at Microsoft.VisualStudio.ExtensionManager.ExtensionManagerService.BeginInstall(IInstallableExtension installableExtension, Boolean perMachine, AsyncOperation asyncOp)
at Microsoft.VisualStudio.ExtensionManager.ExtensionManagerService.InstallWorker(IInstallableExtension extension, Boolean perMachine, AsyncOperation asyncOp)
 
 
Can the install be done manually?
 
Thanks

Hi. I can't reproduce this problem.
You can install manually:
  1. use the installer to install EF model design time support (custom properties)
  2. add new tt template to your project manually (file->add new item). You'll find the CslaExtension.tt file in the installer zip file.
  3. edit CslaExtension.tt file and change the path to the .edmx file
