When installing Zed Axis under certain Windows configurations you may experience the error "The specified path is too long
". This error blocks the successful installation of Zed Axis.
Axis uses a Microsoft installer, the error message is misleading as the path does not exceed the maximum of 140 characters as specified by Microsoft. We are not sure of the cause. But from other discussions
the following resolutions are suggested
Please try the following steps to resolve this:
Using Windows Explorer move the shortcut (symlink) for the Public folder (ie C:\Documents and Settings\All Users) to the Desktop and retry the installation
- Move the Public link back after the installation.
if that does not work try installing on a different installation of Windows
