Re: Error can't create directory

Thanks for the quick response

We are about 240 chars plus the .svn\text-base: puts us about 256

we can only steal about 10 characters off the front of the path. The
rest of the package hierarchy is pretty much locked in.

Does anyone know of a patch for Win2k to extend the path limit?
