Windows MAX_PATH


#1

Has anyone hit MAX_PATH limitations in windows before? I’m calling File::createDirectory and getting errors with long path names.

Apparently prefixing the path with \?\ prevents this, although causes some slight differences in behaviour.

Using shorter path names isn’t a terribly easy option … :slight_smile:
