    Error 0x80010135: Path too long installing Eclipse


    Hello, I am a beginner at software programming and am trying to install Eclipse on Windows 8 Pro. I was trying to extract the files from the zip file but ran into an error (Error 0x0010135:Path too long) during the extraction. Can anyone explain how I would fix this issue please?

    My system is:
    Asus K55N
    Windows 8 Pro 64bit
    8GB RAM
    AMD A8 4500M 1.9Ghz

    These are the steps I followed in extracting the files:
    1)selected Eclipse zip file from Download folder
    2)selected Manage and extract all
    3)extraction begins and reaches about 15% when error window appears (Error 0x80010135:Path too long)


    Thanks
    Mike

    Hi Mike

    Have you tried renaming the archive file for Eclipse to just Eclipse.rar/zip?

    Alternatively, you could try using either 7zip or WinRAR to extract the archive.

    Keep us posted on your outcomes

    Thanks for all your suggestions. I was able to successfully install Eclipse by the first suggestion by Lomai.
