This is a known bug accordingly to the MSDN forums.

Do you have an ampersand ( & ) in your file path or in your computer username?

Let me guess - the specified directory name has an & in it.

Visual Studio has a little quirk in its path handling when creating a project - it ckokes on some otherwise valid special characters in the path.
