Error -5047: Cannot create directory after copy merge modules from CrystalReports


I'm using VS 2015, CrystalReports for VS and InstallShield LE

I started to get an error when deplying my application in a Windows 32 bit, "Unable to register Flash.ocx" so I included the merge modules for 32 bit

And now I receive this error when compiling the setup:

The path exceeds 248 characters limit... Change the build location... error:-5047: Cannot create directory D:\My Porjects\...

So I move my application to a very short location, but still get errors, why do you have such a large paths? How can I change your paths to a shorter one? or How can I fix this problem?

Thank you
