Re: Long Filename support in ROS explorer(-new) ?

Well, to be more precise, the 255 char limit comes from the windows kernel, maybe for backward compatibility. :-) Quote from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filename: Although NTFS allows each path component (directory or filename) to be 255 characters long and paths up to about 32767 characters long,...

Long Filename support in ROS explorer(-new) ?

In our company we have some users creating nested folder structures with long path and filenames that can exceed the limit of 255 characters. These users complain that a doubleclick in windows explorer does not work. In some application's file open dialogs these files can not be selected, too. :( Af...

i am not "porting" my app(s), i try to find out where it stops working. :-) Reporting a bug makes only sense to me if i can provide as much information as possible so developers can spend their time fixing not finding a bug. ;-) I want to test, if simple VB6 apps run already in a current svn. And it...

I made a new simpler version to test the api calls in the CaptureScreen and CaptureWindow functions (See KB article number above in this thread). i saw that the "OleCreateBitmapIndirect" API might be missing, cause it doesn't return valid data (Picture handle = 0), so the calls in the freeimage.dll ...

Die 15% sind Code, der nicht geprüft werden muss, wie z. B. das Build-System.

Soviel ich bislang gelesen hab, wird nach Anzahl Verzeichnissen gerechnet.

Solved

Hello, all of you, it took me a while to find the correct cpp file (mingw.cpp). In this file the binutilsversion is compared to versions strings like 20040902-20041008.
