Pinned topic Can't install WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer V5.1.2

‏2006-06-23T18:35:02Z |
Hello,
I got error message
"The installation cannot continue because the length of your system PATH environment variable is too long to accomodate the entries that IBM WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer 5.1.2 needs to add. Shortening the target install directory may alleviate this problem. See the install log file in the C:\DOCUME~1\mhsing\LOCALS~1\Temp\LRE7.tmp\logs directory for more information."
at installing "WebSphere Studio Enterprise Developer V5.1.2"

I have service pack 2 installed on my Windows XP machine. My current path length is about 1500 bytes.

Is there a way to work around this problem? Thanks.

Mike.

    What about shortening your PATH?

      You should also think of installing WebSphere Developer for z/Series since it is the current
      version.
      You will find some info about path limitation here:

        Hello,
        Thank you very much for the reply.
        It seems information in the link is not all accurate. Windows XP with service pack 2 has 2048 bytes instead of 1024 bytes limit on the length of path. I wonder if there is way for this tool to not check the path so it can be installed successfully.

        Regards,
        Mike.

          You could open new environmet variable Path1 for example and copy the
          content of the Path into Path1 ---> delete the contets of the Path and only
          include the Path1 into Path with %Path1%;
          It works !!!
