RE: unable to open files checked out with long filenames, paths

Our two statements are not incompatible. (I never said the file system had the limitation).

Nevertheless, particularly in this case, using a path closer to the root of the C: drive will work much better for the OP.

> NOTE: just about all platforms have a path limitation, even Unix (which includes Mac OS-X). The really long file and directory names you have here will get you right up to the limit. Perhaps a little sensible abbreviation would help?

Actually, most filesystems do NOT have a path length limitation. Even
with NTFS you're unlikely to hit the limit that it has (32,767 Unicode
characters with each path component (directory or filename) up to 226
characters long). It's the shell/environment/API that's accessing the
filesystem that more often has a limitation - which is what we're
seeing here.
