The tools and tutorial page sends me to this thread, and I can't seem to find any links in this thread.
Can someone please clarify what I'm apparently missing, or provide the link please?

(If browser matters, I'm using Chrome)

Windows File System has a file path character limit of I believe 255 or 260 characters. This is a part of the OS, not the program, and will exist no matter what software you use. It may be necessary to change the configuration file to remove a subfolder in order to reduce the number of characters in the path.

EDIT: Alternatively, you could put the character generator in your base C:\ folder, instead of your Users folder, to remove some path content from the beginning.

Please don't put anything directly on the C:\
Windows has a limit of entries in any directory, but the root is much smaller than all the rest. If you go over a certain number, windows will become intermittently unstable, and eventually fail to boot entirely.
(It's also no where close to a 'best practices' to clutter the root.)

If you need to shorten paths, put all of those into a folder that's on the root, and it can have a really short name if you want it too.
I know microsoft says the 512 limit on root doesn't exist anymore, but it's still not the most stable thing for your machine if you exceed it. Remember, microsoft has no problem calling certain bugs and glitches "undocumented features", and still has issues from previous OS versions that hang around under the band-aids and wallpapering/whitewashing. It's kind of inevitable as long as they maintain the backwards compatibility.

The worst case of this I ran across that was still more or less running had 666,668 entries on the root. Once we cleared that mess out, which took a while, the machine perked right back up to normal and was stable again as well.
Another case was someone that kept installing things directly to the root. Not a different directory on the root, but the root itself. Of course his computer was unstable, but as the stuff he'd installed there were all mixed up together, there were all kinds of issues with mismatched dlls and uninstalls breaking things, etc.
But hey, at least they weren't storing important files in the trash, or putting the swap file in a ramdrive! (Also real things fools have done.)

As a general note, it's good to clear the temp files (tmp) from the root, as well as old log files and other cruft that tends to build up on many machines.

Hello there, I've PM'd you but I also figure I should post here. Is the software still available? It would help a lot in developing my characters.
