    Trying to install the latest WPF VSExtensions (2011.1.422.0) shows the following error in the log:

    4/27/2011 12:07:21 PM - Beginning to install extension to Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate...

    Since we can't change the install directory there is no way to install it, however the 419 and previous versions did work.

    Hi Travis,

    The longs paths are indeed a limitation when running the VSIX installations in Windows XP.
    Did you by any chance have the previous Telerik WPF VSExtensions installed by the installer, but not through the VS Online Gallery?

    Here are the steps to install them the way the installer does (administrative install, i.e. add them under the Visual Studio install dir):

    1. Download the VSExtensions to a local folder
    2. Run a Visual Studio 2010 Command Prompt
    3. Navigate to the folder with the VSExtensions package
    4. run the following command:
      vsixinstaller.exe /a Telerik.WPF.VSPackage.vsix

    Let me know if that helps.

    Kind regards,
    Erjan Gavalji
