Hi all,

I have a package I can't open in Studio 2014. It contains xliffs that apparently have names that are too long.
Is there a way to extract the xliffs from the package in Windows Explorer os so, so that I can shorten the file names manually? Or is there a way in Studio 2014 to fix this error?

Thanks in advance for your help.
