Visual Studio name too long error

When you create your solution/project inside Visual Studio it gives you error that name is too long and it cannot create that solution/project. So some of you might be thinking that looks like VS has some limitation on characters for a project/solution.

Well that’s not the case. Problem is that if you create solution deep inside the path (default path of VS is document & settings -> visual studio projects etc.) then this error arises and if you change the path to some small path like c:\working or c:\VSProjects and keep your solution name as its, it will work.
