Gamemaker v1.4 game doesn’t load

I tried testing my game on v1.4999 yesterday and at first it would load and read path.file too long/compile error. Later my game took forever (1 hour) to load but as soon as it began compiling it just stopped. Can someone help me fix this? I’ve been working on my game for way too long for it to mess up now.

Have you tried moving it ("save-as" the project) somewhere with a shorter path name? (E.g. instead of C:/My Documents/My Projects/The Amazing Adventures of Steven And His Forty-Nine Little Puppies/The Amazing Adventures of Steven And His Forty-Nine Little Puppies.gmx, save it as D:/Stuff/proj.gmx) There is a maximal file name length, and the project assets are files.

Could be worth cleaning the asset cache as well (in case it used precompiled stuff with the old illegal paths) and see if it works after that.

Also, try the "check resource names" sanity checker to verify that all asset names are legal (so the paths didn't get cut off or something, causing references to be broken)
 
I already cleared temp data, cleared the asset cache, cleaned the build (broom icon) & nothing changed. Where can I find "check resource names" sanity checker?

If it's worked before on an earlier version than 1.4.9999, it could be worth switching back to that version (I personally use 1.4.1773 since every version since has had bugs that caused issues in my existing 1.4 projects). (Even if the download links are hidden in the patch notes, they work if you manually type the version number out using one of the existing download links)
 
My game worked previously in version 1.4.999 (The latest version). But out of nowhere I received this message and I can’t solve it up until this moment. In the past when I’ve experienced this issue I just save as: to a shorter location & Ive made the project name shorter & its worked, but not this time.
 
Check Resource Names didn't work. The same compiler issue popped up.

Upon running my game I receive an error message from GameMakerStudio AssetCompiler stating that
The specified path, file name, or both are too long. The fully qualified file name must be less than 260 characters, and the directory name must be less than 248 characters. But it doesn't describe in detail which sprite/object needs to be adjusted. Need Help!
