in reply to Shorten windows paths too long

I'm not sure if perl and all of the modules you are using are aware of this but try the solution from here There is another API which is not limited to 260 characters but 32768. This Unicode API can be addressed by using a '\\?\' prefix e.g. '\\?\C:\temp\' or for network shares '\\?\UNC\server\c$\temp'. See attached link for details.

Update: corrected wrong link.
