I’m trying to create a file connection with a very long path name - for instance, I have one that that is 267 characters, which is larger than the default .NET path support. In my application we have internally added support for very long paths using the AlphaFS library.
I can create a connection string with this path and call m_si.Connections = si_connection to set the connection without error or exceptions but the file is never created.
Here is a sample of a file connection I am trying to use that fails:
file(filename=“C:\PN\Word AEO 6.3 NAS - Search emails for Google, manually filter for relating to work performed or proposed01234567890123456789012\PNCU627214\20160411163648_14_Google enlists balloon experts from French space agency to bring Project Loon to life feedly_058-261.sil”)
Is this file path simply too long? The folder C:\PN\Word AEO 6.3 NAS - Search emails for Google, manually filter for relating to work performed or proposed01234567890123456789012\PNCU627214\ does exist before I am setting up the smart inspect object.
