    Video is awesome. Had struggled with this issue for ages. It is not picking up version 26 in as much as I have it installed. Any ideas?

    Since Windows 3.1, there has been the limitation for filename length but still windows defaults to placing projects in a directory already using up 100 characters of the limit. 

    With the progress in technology over the years, is it not possible to get rid of that limitation.
