Unexpected error: The specified path, file name, or both are too long.

Dependency visualization error.

Unexpected error: 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.

OK

Some Try/Catch/Rethrow would be nice so atleast any notion of which project it has trouble with could be determined.

This is my suspects:
Microsoft Visual Studio Solution File, Format Version 10.00

Visual Studio 2008

Project("{FAE04EC0-301F-11D3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC}") = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx", "......\xxxxxx\xxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.csproj", "{5BE5AF4E-D9B3-4E99-B46F-96F825D85148}"
EndProject
Project("{FAE04EC0-301F-11D3-BF4B-00C04F79EFBC}") = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx", "......\xxxxxx\xxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.csproj", "{3DBD4DD4-9023-4A25-98E4-2E23A2386869}"
EndProject

The ......\ will end up at:
X:\xxx\xxxxxxxxxxxx\x\

So the latter Project's full path is, where the \ makes it easy to see where the paths join.
X:\xxx\xxxxxxxxxxxx\x\xxxxxx\xxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx\xxxxxxxxxxxx.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.csproj = 180 chars.

The paths contains no special characters, so only English characters. (a-z, 0-9 . - _ etc).

Hope this helps.
