PathTooLongException when running "Setup.bat" for the source build
I'm trying to run "Setup.bat" after downloading the zip file from the GitHub UnrealEngine repository, release branch (4.9). At the end of the setup, I got this error:
with 1.8 MiB remaining on the download/setup. I use Windows 7 Pro x64. Anything I can do to resolve this?
Running Setup.bat creates and fills a number of folders that are rooted in the same file path where Setup.bat exists. The error that you're seeing is due to the full file path from the drive root is too long. The easiest way to solve this is to move the folder that contains Setup.bat to a folder closer to the drive root and then run Setup.bat again.

The error is clear, wherever your downloadig to is leading to a certain file exceeding the max limit on charactersin a path which is 255 inn windows.
Right click -> save target as -> save it to something like C:\ue\ or something so that it can be as short as possible.

I just changed the name of the folder to be smaller and it worked through this step...
