Moved .ism and now Merge Modules can't be Found/Compressed...

Hi all,

I have an install template (.ism) that is located in a certain folder, InstallShield 2010 Projects\OurPro. Here, all builds fine.

Now, with our upcoming version, I created a folder as follows...

InstallShield 2010 Projects\2.0\OurPro.

I copied the .ism to this location and attempted to build after changing the Path Variable from the old source location (C:\Install Source\OurPro) to the new source file location (C:\Install Source\2.0\OurPro). Unfortunately, I get can't find/compress messages on the Merge Modules. I tried de/re-selecting the modules in the Redistributables view, but that didn't work.

Now, if I copy the contents of the 2.0 build folder back up a level (original versions build path), everything builds properly.

How can I remap to the Merge Modules I need to include from the \2.0 folder.

Any help greatly appreciated.

I believe I found the problem. The paths I gave were examples and it seems the real path naming pushes me over a length limit.

Support informs the issue here is Windows Path limits, not something directly with the InstallShield app.
