ATN to XML script does not work on "Save As" Actions that contain file paths above 120 characters

Hello everyone,

for the past days I have been trying to figure out why the ATN to XML script (which converts a photoshop action to an external XML file) is working on some of my actions but not on others with seemingly no relevant difference between them. Until I painstakingly managed to isolate the error - file path length for the "Save As" command.

Every time I try to convert an Action to an XML file which has a "Save As" command with a more than 120 character file path, after selecting the output destination for the XML file, photoshop just freezes, going into "not responding" mode. 

 

Two things:

 

 1. I would really appreciate it if someone could reproduce this error. Via this link you can download 2 actions, one includes a 120 character file path, the other 121 characters - no other difference. Please use the ActionToXML.jsx script on both and confirm whether or not this issue is just on my local machine.

 

2. If "1." turns out to be a universal issue, any ideas how to fix it? If it's just my machine, what could be the reason? 

 

Thanks!
