Hi i created application using AssortedLayedred Sample. I need Windows Service also as UI type. So icreated one more Solution folder in the name of 'WindowsServer' and add new windows service project in the name of 'Applciation.UI.WinService.MyServiceName' But i got error as Project Name exceeded you must reduce your name.  So how can i create like the strcture i have?

I think you may have hit the Visual Studio project name maximum length limit. Generally, the length of our projects should be around 35 characters or less. Not sure if this can help but you can try relocating your solution to a shorter path i.e. C:\Projects. I read before that VS will complain when the path + solution name + project name exceeds 260 characters (inclusive of separators).
