Unit Test not creating PointTest class

So I am getting an error when creating the Unit Test for the Point class. My error is as follows:

The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters.

How do I know which of those are too long?

Hey Daniel, have you tried moving your project to a different, shorter filepath? Can you share the filepath of your project?

If you really want to know whether it's the file or filepath, I would just count the characters of both and see which is causing the filepath to go over 260 characters.

This may also be a good place to start.

Sorry I don't do much with C#, but those seem like good things to try first.

Ok so did some playing around with it. It did not like the file in my documents folder, but had no problem with it in my repos folder for GitHub related projects. So I got it working.
