    This is the message Box I receive. Maybe the filename is too long?

    Many thanks.

    ---------------------------
    Microsoft Visual Studio
    ---------------------------
    Impossibile installare l'estensione perché si è verificato il seguente errore:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Nicola\Impostazioni locali\Dati applicazioni\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\Extensions\Telerik\Telerik WebUI VSExtensions\2011.3.1125.0\ProjectTemplates\Telerik\Web\TlrkASPNETAJAXCSWebSiteTk.zip: TlrkASPNETAJAXCSWebSiteTk.vstemplate
    ---------------------------
    OK

    Hello Nicola,

    I think that the problem is with too long paths, too. To resolve the issue you can manually install the Telerik WebUI VSExtensions as admin. Here are steps you need to follow:
    1. Download the latest vsix installer (download link for ease);
    2. Open the Visual Studio 2010 Command Prompt and navigate to the location where you downloaded the vsix file;
    3. Run the command: VsixInstaller.exe /admin [VsixFileName].vsix

    This command will attempt to install the VS Extension in the Visual Studio 2010 install location where the target path calculated will be shorter.

    I hope the suggestion will help you to install the latest Telerik WebUI VSExtensions. If you have any further questions, please write us again.
