Extended length paths in Windows

Maybe you are one of persons who belived for this moment that maximal length of path in Windows is equal to MAX_PATH ( 260 signs). Nothing further from the truth !!!.

In document which you can download below I have described inter alia:

- what is the maximum path length and from which it follows
- in how achieve possibility to create paths longer than MAX_PATH
- details related with WinApi, where path length and it’s type is tested

entire post you can find here:’em/?lang=en
