If I try to create a new project in a folder path that is pretty long "C:\Users\userjimmym\Documents\Personal\Project_Files\Reflow Oven\Tiny2313_Based_Controller\AVR6_Code"
I get an error that the full path is too long.
However, if I create a project in AS4 in the path "C:\Users\userjimmym\Documents\Personal\Project_Files\Reflow Oven\Tiny2313_Based_Controller\AVR_Code", it creates it just fine.
Then if I go into AS6.2 I can import that project into the the path "C:\Users\userjimmym\Documents\Personal\Project_Files\Reflow Oven\Tiny2313_Based_Controller\AVR6_Code" without any problems. Bug?

Windows itself is a bit funny about its pathname length limits - the same path can be accepted in one context, but rejected as "too long" in another.

In the examples you cite, it could also be to do with different lengths of subfolder and/or file names that get added to the "base" path...

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected
  4. Difference between a crystal, and a crystal oscillatorhttps://www.avrfreaks.net/comment...

I was also thinking it might be the space in the "Reflow Oven" folder name. I'm going to be shortening up some of that crap this weekend. Otherwise, I like 6.2. Sure it doesn't start up as quickly as 4.18, but not too bad. I'm upgrading from WinXP 2GB RAM this weekend to Win7 x64 4GB RAM. We'll see. Going up to 8GB of RAM was just too much.

Spaces in file/folder names is another whole can of worms!

Just Don't Do It!

I know! Right? Rookie mistake. Shame on me. I've re-arranged a couple of things and haven't yet gotten that message again.
