Error: 2147942487 applying hotfix to SCCM 2007 Primary server

Attempting to apply a hotfix to my SCCM 2007 R3Primary server, I recieved an error 2147942487  (The parameter is incorrect). Googling this showed all kinds of non relevant pages!

My error: When the hotfix prompted me to specify a name for the client patch, I appended the purpose of the patch to the name.

The Issue: SCCM has a maximum allowable  length for the package name which the Hotfix had allowed me to exceed.

The Solution: Keep the suggested name, then change it later on in the SCCM console.
