Is there a limit to the length in characters of a path to a particular part
or assembly? I am setting up a file structure for library parts / iparts and
some are quite buried 60-70 characters in the path.

I would imagine that it's the Windows limitation of 255 characters. 60-70 characters - this sounds
like a complex directory structure here. From experience, Inventor has better performance with a
fairly flat folder structure, although setting out your project correctly should eliminate some
performance hits.
