Trouble with Installer built with Builder

Hi:

I've built an installer with the instaler builder, but when I try it, I get this message: "A portion of the folder path " is invalid. it is either empty or exceeds the length allowed by the system" I've tried the builder before, and made another installer and it works just fine. so what is wrong here?

Thanks

griiker

The issue seems to be related with the number of characters in the file path way. (perhaps too many subfolders.

Hi Griiker,

I'm wondering if you put a path in the "Destination Folder" field in the "Edit Project Item" dialog?

Normally this isn't needed. When it is blank, the project item will get installed in the main install folder. You can put a folder name here to have it installed in a sub folder. A full path might end up with a subfolder that is too long though.

I'm going to update the UI to make this a bit clearer.

Do you think it might be the problem?
Paul.

That solved it! Being a relative newbie, what is patently obvious to more experienced arduinozens is a lot less clear to a beginner like me. often these things are so simple!

thanks
