I am trying to install 1.3.38 on my computer which has VS 2013 Pro and VS2015 Pro.
When I do the installation I get “The specified path is too long: \\hd-file-01\users\sramirez\My Documents\Visual Studio 2017\Templates\ProjedTemplates\Visual Basic”
I don’t have 2017 installed.
I can’t change the path.
I tried logging in as a local user and isntalling WiseJ. It allowed the install to complete. However, I now have no template for WiseJ projects (New Project\Visual Basic).
What do I need to do?
Nope, you have to copy like this:
\\Templates.zip\Visual Basic\Items => \My Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Templates\ItemTemplates\Visual Basic\Wisej
\\Templates.zip\Visual Basic\Projects => \My Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual Basic\Wisej
One more thing, after the installer gets the error, it appears to do a roll back. Is this the case? Do I just install WiseJ as a local user to get around the error?
Can you clarify something for me on this?
I see the path …\ProjectTemplates\Visual Basic
The Templates.zip file has a folder “Visual Basic”. Do the “Items” and “Projects” folders go directly into the …\ProjectTemplates\Visual Basic folder
Yep, the installer was adding the VS directories for all versions for a single file – it’s not related to this issue though. The directory is created and it’s just there, doesn’t do anything. The path is too long problem may be connected to a network drive or subst drive?
You can add the templates manually to:
\\users\sramirez\My Documents\Visual Studio 2013 (and/or 2015)\Templates\ProjectTemplates\Visual Basic
\\users\sramirez\My Documents\Visual Studio 2013 (and/or 2015)\Templates\ItemTemplates\Visual Basic
This is a link to the templates:
