I am trying to install a driver for my graphics card and i get the error mess set up cannot proceed because the length of the specified directory path plus the installation folder exceeds 88 charecteres please shorten both below the limit.

for the installation so limited
usually the install program downloads to
C:\Documents and settings\computername\local settings\Temp -already about fifty characters

maybe putting the installation program in the c; will let it work ?

of 'Save' or 'Run'

if save 'save it to C; '

if not when you extract the files there will be an install file *.exe or *.com and if the name is exceptionally long - shorten it but keep extension
