During the initial setup, Application Manager for MECM/WSUS can notify that the folder structure of specified Software Download Location is too long. This is because Windows has a limit of 256 characters for folder structures.
If you are positive that your folder structure in a local folder or in an UNC location will not reach 256 characters you can bypass this restriction:
- During the setup, specify a temporary shorter location.
- After the setup, open C:\ProgramData\Recast Software\Application Manager\PackageDownloader\PackageDownloader.xml with a text editor.
- Specify the wanted location and folder structure to the XML-file within the tags
