Defeating the 256 character limit when creating a deployment!
Softimage Family: changing from Standalone to Network licensing

Error: The copy functions cannot be used.

In this case, an educational site was installing the Autodesk Design Academy 2013 and the following error came up during the deployment creation:

The copy functions cannot be used1

The copy functions cannot be used.
Failed to copy the following files:  E:\3rd Pary  

In this case, the solution is easy.  The problem was that the deployment was started on a local workstation [Computer A]  and was trying to create the deployment over the network on Computer B.

You will need to have the instalaltion media on the actual server [Computer B] and create the deployment on the server  [Computer B]  using a Windows Remote Desktop  Connection on Computer A.
