The path include filename.
If its networked, it'll include path on the network drive.
networked, character count includes network server path
special characters? space gets read as %20?

"file path too long" error
I have run across this error and would like some help in solving it. I have counted the length of the file path, including the file extension and spaces, and came up with 109 characters. This is well below the 250 or so that is the supposed windows limitation. I have tried shortening the file path by eliminating some characters but that does not help.
Any suggestions on what to try next?
Thanks for your help
Are you using PDM? I seem to recall that Versions get added to the path length, but I don't know exactly how.
Do you have Virtual Components? A bad naming convention for these can really gobble-up the path length.
Happy Thanksgiving, BTW.
Is it on a network drive?
If so, then the "letter" doesn't count for the character count.
You have to include the entire UNC path for the network drive. (on second look, it looks like you and Frederick Law were already discussing this).
