Goal

How can you bypass the MAX_PATH limitation in Windows when you export files with LCM?

In the Windows API, the maximum length for a path is MAX_PATH, defined as 260 characters.

A local path is structured as follows:  drive letter, colon, backslash, components separated by backslashes,  terminating null character.


For example:
D:\xxxx\xxxx\xxxx>

where ">" represents the invisible terminating null character.
