Your path is too long. The most commonly used Windows API has a hard
limit of 255 (I think, may be closer to 215) characters in the path.
The path you're checking out to is considerably longer.

For starters, put your WC somewhere that isn't your desktop
c:\documents and settings\username\desktop uses up 40-plus characters
right away.

But you may just have to check out a subset of your project to keep
the path length shorter.
