BUt why do You want to install a programm into 'StartMenu'?
I have installed FM13 'normally' and it's under 'ProgrammFiles' - as under earlier versions of Windows. AFAIK, applications belong to programmfiles, a shortcut goes to the startmenu..
he isn't, most likely filemaker is trying to install shortcuts into the start menu folder and running into the known issue I posted the fix for above.
ah.. Sorry for that! I was wondering if that would be possible at all. I personally don't have shortcuts in the menu
I wonder that on Windows7
C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\FileMaker Server\FMS 13 Admin Console.website
is created without error. This has only 99 bytes total.
Windows8.1 support shorter length than 7?
I thank all the kind people who gave me many suggestions and lessons from all over the world. The problem was resolved. Here, I would like to describe how it happened.
First, I was suggested that this problem would be resolved if proper windows update was applied. However, I found all the updates listed had been applied.
Then I read “FileMaker Server Installation Woes” in FileMaker Community, and thought it might be because of incomplete uninstallation of FMS13 components. However, even though I followed all the lines in the page, the result was the same.
Then I made web search with the word “Error 1320”, and found the page titled “SPSS – Error 1320. The specified path is too long”. I followed the suggestion on the page. I renamed the “Start Menu” folder in “C:/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/” and installed FMS13. This installation was not interrupted. However, the set-up process of FMS13 was not normal. I over-installed FMS13 but the problem continued. I uninstalled FMS13 and checked the “Program Files” folder and found that “FileMaker” folder was not completely deleted. I manually deleted it, and installed FMS13 again. All these installations were not interrupted. This time, the set-up was possible without problems, and now FMS13 is working properly. One strange thing is that when I first installed FMS13 just after the new computer was delivered, I remember a new icon to start FMS13 on the browser was created. But this time, no such icon was created and I had to make a short-cut myself.
This is all happened to me. I cannot explain it technically and logically. But anyway, FMS13 is working again. Thank you!
