Error Creating Package.. ..The file name is a device or contains invalid characters.

    Question

  • Hello,

    I am working on a clean installation of windows 7 enterprise, visual studio 2008 with sp1 and sql server 2008 r2.  I open up an existing ssis project in order to create a new ssis package to test something.  In the solution explorer, when I right click on the folder that reads SSIS Packages and select from the menu 'New SSIS Package', I receive the following error message:

    Error creating package (Microsoft Visual Studio)

    Failed to save package file "C:\Users\elizabethba\Local Settings\Temp\tmp24C2.tmp" with error 0xC020207E "The file name is not valid. The file name is a device or contains invalid characters.".

    I have been doing research on this error message without luck.   Anyone else seen this and found a solution? 

    Thanks!
