Problems installing Draftsight

I am using a Windows 8 machine, when I run the installer I get the message: Error 1320. The specified path is too long
C:\ProgramData\Application Data\Dassault Systemes.

I tried using WinZip and it gave me error 0x80070057

Any ideas for a workaround?

Sympathy for your issue. My experience in Win7 was problem free. I don't know why you have this problem. I typed
"Windows 8 Error 1320. The specified path is too long" into GOOGLE and there seems to be multiple links to this error in several different software/application loading scenarios as shown here.

Maybe someone with more IT troubleshooting experience know more...
