Long file path support

Wolvenkit showed me a popup, how do I fix this?

Why is this a problem?

If your file paths are longer than 256 characters and your operating system does not support long paths, Wolvenkit will run into errors when importing/exporting files.

How to enable long filepath support?


Find the full guide at microsoft.com


  1. Open a Powershell window as administrator (Keyboard shortcuts: Windows+R, type powershell, pressCtrl+Shift+Enter)

  2. Paste the following command:

New-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem" `
-Name "LongPathsEnabled" -Value 1 -PropertyType DWORD -Force
  1. Press Enter


This feature is supported out-of-the-box. Just try to stay under 4000 characters.
