I used for example the project name TestFeed.Customer which is located in Visual Studio 2005 project folder at my documents and I get following error.

"Project Templeate Wizard"
"A problem was encountered creating the sub project '$ServiceImplementationProjectName$'. 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."

I guess I should shorten it by creating a folder right under the C root directory or make some project template changes in names?

Yep, seems like (after testing a couple of ways) my default project directory in VS 2005 is far too long and can easily exceed the maximal path length. So you should shorten it up if you encounter this error.

Yes, this is something we'll try to handle more elegantly in the next version, but it is something you'll have to be more mindful of for now. Thanks,
