    I had a setup of Lineage 2 Interlude on this path
    C:\Users\ExTaCy1337\Desktop\Folder\FORMAT\Format\ExTaCy1337\Lineage II Installers\LineageII_interlude_client\


    And I was running the setup and nothing was happening...
    when I movied LineageII_interlude_client
    to C:\...
    like C:\LineageII_interlude_client\

    It worked perfect... Why?
    and I had some music

    C:\Users\ExTaCy1337\Desktop\Folder\f0rm4t11\Downloads\Summer Hits Collection\

    and all the music there I couldn't move them into Virtual DJ ...
    So I had to put them

    on ExTaCy1337 (C:\Users\ExTaCy1337) which is not that big and then they worked...
    Why's that happening? :\

    Hello and welcome to the Windows 7 Forums.
    Sorry, I'm not sure I understand your problem, could you describe it a little better? Thanks! :)

    Your path does not seem to be correct.

    Files with a big path like this

    C:\Users\ExTaCy1337\Desktop\Folder\FORMAT\Format\ExTaCy1337\Lineage II Installers\LineageII_interlude_client\setup.exe

    Doesn't run....
    I tried everything to get it run but nothing worked...
    when I moved the folder to C:\ it run!!

    Files with a path like this

    C:\LineageII_interlude_client\setup.exe

    Run...!

    Why you say that?

    Cheers to "nabucco" for the post! Some rep for you.
    Unfortunately, I don't think it can be tweaked.

    You can use Long Path Tool as well, it works good!

    I agree with aliceten. Long Path Tool is an excellent solution to such a problem.
