This project must be moved before it can be upgraded

If you get an error that "This project must be moved before it can be upgraded" when trying to upgrade your Presenter 5 presentation to Presenter '09, you need to move your project to a folder with a shorter path.

There is a Windows limitation that the path to a file cannot exceed 260 characters.  If the files in your Presenter 5 presentation exceed that path limitation you will recieve this message.

To resolve this issue, copy your Presenter 5 project folder to a shorter path, such as to your "My Documents" folder.
