Hi,

 

Does anyone know how to work around the limitation on file path longer than 260 characters during the publication stage ?

 

For example :

 

When "andsearch_nomark.png" is copied from :

C:\Projets RoboHelp\Tests\ImbricationSousProjets\SousProjet5\!SSL!\Responsive_HTML5\mergedProjects\SousProjet6\mergedProjects\SousProjet7\mergedProjects\SousProjet8\mergedProjects\SousProjet9\template\Azure_Blue

to :

C:\Projets RoboHelp\Tests\ImbricationSousProjets\SousProjet4\!SSL!\Responsive_HTML5\mergedProjects\SousProjet5\mergedProjects\SousProjet6\mergedProjects\SousProjet7\mergedProjects\SousProjet8\mergedProjects\SousProjet9\template\Azure_Blue

--> it's ok

 

But when "back_mobile_filter.png" is copied from :

C:\Projets RoboHelp\Tests\ImbricationSousProjets\SousProjet5\!SSL!\Responsive_HTML5\mergedProjects\SousProjet6\mergedProjects\SousProjet7\mergedProjects\SousProjet8\mergedProjects\SousProjet9\template\Azure_Blue

to :

C:\Projets RoboHelp\Tests\ImbricationSousProjets\SousProjet4\!SSL!\Responsive_HTML5\mergedProjects\SousProjet5\mergedProjects\SousProjet6\mergedProjects\SousProjet7\mergedProjects\SousProjet8\mergedProjects\SousProjet9\template\Azure_Blue

--> it's not ok because destination file path is longer than 260

 

We get following errors :

> La publication a été annulée.

> Le chemin d'accès spécifié est introuvable.

Nope - you need to keep everything as short as you can.

I typically generate my output to a separate folder at the same level as my projects like:

c:\my_projects\<sub folders for each project>

c:\my_outputs\<sub folders for each project>
