Error 206. Could not create file because file name is too long.

The path to a certain file can only be so long due to operating system parameters; and if you download somewhere with an already long filename (C:\Windows\Users\Example\My Documents\Downloads) for example; then long named files will cause an error. Try moving the downloader to a shorter named area, ie "C:\Downloads"  and try again. If you kept the GamersGate Temporary files you can move them with the installer and continue where you left off.
