Is the registry setting [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem] LongPathsEnabled supported in Windows Server 2019? Is it supposed to work? Regards marius
By setting the registry key LongPathsEnabled to 1, most of the common Win32 file and directory functions will be able to use file paths exceeding 260 characters.
However, with the option enabled, Explorer still fails to use long file paths. Explorer is not long filepath aware. This is a by design behavior, as there are a lot of legacy APIs and DLLs which win32 applications depend on.
As a workaround, you can try to create the folder using PowerShell.
