Using 3.0 when i go to settings for the plugin.

http://localhost/admin/CategoriesHeaderMenuAdmin/Settings

I get the following error:

[PathTooLongException: The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters.]
   System.IO.PathHelper.GetFullPathName() +10663326
   System.IO.Path.NormalizePath(String path, Boolean fullCheck, Int32 maxPathLength) +900
   System.IO.Path.GetFullPathInternal(String path) +46
   System.Security.Util.StringExpressionSet.CanonicalizePath(String path, Boolean needFullPath) ....

Also when i try to deploy the project using the batch file i get:

Hi firthy,

Please specify another location for the Visual Studio project as otherwise the file location is too long. The path should be less than 255 characters. Simply change the "C:\Users\Tangent\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\WebSites\selectalsico" to be "C:\nopCommerce".

Thanks
