The error you're seeing here is described briefly in the error message. What's happened is a generated resource path exceeded windows MAX_PATH (260 char) during the build:

> Reason: System.IO.PathTooLongException: Path is too long.

You can attempt to move the SecureStore sample directly to the C:\ Drive (or possibly %USERPROFILE%) to work around this.
