File too long

Windows is capping filenames at 260 characters by default. This can lead to APEXcl not being able to create files on your system because of how deep the file hierarchy can be.

If you are running APEXcl on a Git repository, you can override the system limit by running the following:

-- allow long paths for the current git repo
git config core.longpaths true

-- allow long paths for all Git repos
git config --system core.longpaths true

If you do not use Git, you can directly override the limit at the OS level directly:

  1. Start the registry editor (regedit.exe)
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem
  3. Double click LongPathsEnabled
  4. Set to 1 and click OK
  5. Reboot
