Updated the path so that it's significantly smaller.

Thanks for the notification, Shaun. I have just uploaded a modified version of the toolkit and changed the VSIX path name from "...\ProjectTemplates... to "...\PT..." - hopefully that will resolve the issue. Would you let me know if that was enough to resolve the problem for you? Best regards!

Oh, and I also changed “...\Windows Azure Toolkit for WP7...” to “...\WAz Toolkit for WP7...". I'll be thankful when the 255 character issue for full filenames is gone!
