Occasionally when uploading SCORM packages, a Learning Author gets the error "The package you have selected contains a long filepath that would exceed the limit of the file system. Please shorten the filepath and try again."
There is a filepath limit of 220 characters for all SCORM uploads. To reduce the number of characters, please try the following:
- Shorten the name of the ZIP file itself before uploading
- Save the ZIP file directly to the desktop or another location that is not within another folder like a network folder or cloud server
- You may need to work with the SCORM creator to ensure the file names within the SCORM package > SCORM content > Assets, folder are shortened to allow to upload to Brainshark.
This video name and its file path name is 202 characters long:

Once uploaded, Brainshark adds another 40 characters to the beginning of the filepath name which then exceeds the limit and results in an error.
