Long Path Support

Post by Andre.Ziegler » 14 Sep 2016, 09:13

In Windows 10 1607 (Anniversary Update) adds support for long paths to eliminate the MAX_PATH issue.

To do this the user had to enable the group policy entry "enable NTFS long paths" under Computer Configuration -> Admin Templates -> System -> FileSystem:

Applications that support long paths must have this entry in the application manifest:

Code: Select all

<application xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">
  <windowsSettings>
    <longPathAware xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/SMI/2016/WindowsSettings">true</longPathAware>
  </windowsSettings>
</application>
Can you set the GPO entry, put this entry in the manifest and test if Salamander works fine with longs paths? If it works, please release a new version.
