Windows 10 Anniversary Update and Long File Paths


Recommended Posts

Microsoft has finally, in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, "fixed" the limitation of 260 characters for the file path


Before i enable this does Emby (and the apps) already support this or perhaps will in the future as an application has to explicitly support it for it to work?




Enabling NTFS long paths will allow manifested Win32 applications and Windows Store applications to access paths beyond the normal 260 char limit per node. Enabling this setting will cause the long paths to be accessible within the process.

This actually means that an application has to have the following line in its manifest: <longPathAware>true</longPathAware>
