I am working on analyzing a large base of source code provided to me as a 5GB .zip file. I need to maintain the exact file structure when extracting, however, when I attempt to extract I get an error message saying:
The file name(s) would be too long for the destination folder.
I understand that this is due to Windows' 260 character limit on file paths, but there is a hotfix for this published by Microsoft.
I downloaded the hotfix, ran as an administrator, but then got another error:
This update is not applicable to your computer.
Well, according to the hotfix literature, it should be exactly applicable to my computer.
- Windows 7 Ultimate
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
