RnE & Paths longer than 260 chars

Post by thany » Sat Feb 11, 2012 8:51 pm

RnE reports "Unable to extract archive" when the resulting path is going to be longer than 260 characters. Now I know lots of applications have problems with this, and I don't understand why. Paths longer than 260 characters have been possible since windows 2000, so that's twelve years.

Paths can be up to 32768 characters, iirc. I'm sure this can be fixed in NL as well ;)

Using NL 4.0 on Windows 7 SP1 x64.
Running Newsleecher 7.0 on Windows 10 x64, because 4.0 stopped working
