I'm trying to extract and install the UML2-tools plugin, but some paths
are longer than 260 characters. It's practically impossible to install.
Is there a workaround?

I'm not sure it's such a great idea to have file names such as this:
Figure 9.11 - The internal structure of the Observer collaboration shown
inside the collaboration icon.uml

It looks like it's already fixed
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=238098

You can try the maintenance stream build:

Hello W.F.,

Yes, its a known problem at windows platform covered by https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=238098.
We are sorry for that.

But there are plenty of workarounds, even if you want to stay with Windows
:). Personally I would recommend options 3) or 4) listed below.

1. You can just ignore missed example file, diagramming itself does not depends
on it and should work the same way.
2. Even more, I believe that you can completely remove the whole samples
plugin and (except a logged error message on startup) diagramming still should
work.
3. You can install U2T from update manager pointing it to http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/updates/milestones/ ,
it is verified to work on any platform
4. You can also switch to 0.8.1 maintenance stream builds, which is available
for download as zips at the http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/downloads/?project=uml2t ools
and as an update manager at http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/updates/interim/.
The latest M-stream build was compiled against the release versions of our
dependencies (so it is fully compatible with Ganymede, you don't need to
switch any other plugins/features to maintenance stream) and it has this
and a couple of more bugs fixed. Right now the latest M-build available is
M200807071308, but we are probably going to build one more hot-fixes M build
in a couple of days.

Just in case, I am going to crosspost the list of workaround above into the
bug #238098

Once again, we are sorry for inconvenience,
Michael

The 0.8.1 maintenance stream build still has some very long paths,
although I noticed that some files have been renamed.

I don't know the correct limits under Windows, but it's not just the file
name that can't be too long. The total path must not exceed 260 characters
as well (that's the Winrar message), depending where you want to extract
them.

Well I will remove some or all of the examples and that will be OK.

Thanks for the help.

I had the same issue some times with different plugins, because plugin
content hierarchies tend to get very deep.
One workaround is to use 7-Zip (7-zip.org) for unpacking. This works for me.
