    Using the Map Point API from VB I sometimes get the following error message: "The file name is too long. Enter a shorter file name, and try again." when calling MapPoint.SavedWebPage.Save(). This happens even though it created the file.

    Thanks.

    There is a maximum length of 260 characters for the combination of path, filename and extension when using MapPoint.SavedWebPage.Save(). In your case, some files are probably under that limit (so they are created) while others aren't (causing the error to appear). Path names are usually the main culprits, but you'll also notice that MapPoint automatically generates a folder and puts some additional files into it with standard filenames, so you can actually hit this 260 character limit for some of the supporting files quite easily.
