Hi,

Is that on Windows XP? I have another report showing the same issue. I will change the installer to copy the templates into a less deep path.

Thanks,
Laurent

I am seeing the same issue on Windows 7 x64, Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate.

Hi,

I just published a new installer that should fix the issues you are seeing. Please let me know if that is indeed fixing the "path too long" problem.

Thanks!

Hi ningj123,

The text you copied hints that you are still using the old VSIX. Please try uininstalling the old version of MVVM Light V4 and then performing a clean fresh install with the new MSI 4.0.23.3.

If you still have issues, please let me know.

Thanks
Laurent
