HANA Studio (Eclipse with ABAP Plugins installed)

I downloaded and installed Eclipse.

In Eclipse I installed the ABAP Development Tools.

Unfortunately I can not open Info Obects. When trying I get the following Exception:

How can it be fixed?

    If I remember correctly then :

    The cause for the issue was with the Eclipse installation.

    Eclipse was installed in the user directory. The username was a long name.

    This resulted in missing directory and or files due to path names too long

    Install Eclipse (HANA Studio) in the path C:\ (Windows root directory)
