CPC is written in .NET, and thus suffers from .NET's limitations regarding total path length (maximum total path length is 260 characters).

The solution is to ensure that you do not use deeply nested folders with long names.

Also, it would appear that someone has checked in the CPC artifacts directories (_tfs), which is not correct. You should use another tool, like Team Explorer, to remove these folders from source control.
