I am trying to create a streaming profile using Citrix streaming profiler. When I am saving
I am receiving " unable to save the target. the creation of a short file name index failed".
The application I am trying to stream is VLC player. I am a local admin on the box and has full control on all the folders. Error screen is attached.
I checked this article.

Are you doing a UNC path? Try creating a local share and saving to it instead? Or temporarily give everyone full control to the share and see if it works, then you at least know it is permission.  Or, find the citrix streaming profiler service and change the service account to your user account which you know has permission.
