Disabling the 8.3 File Naming Convention on a Windows Operating System
Before you install Oracle WebCenter Content on a Windows Operating System, you need to disable the 8.3 file naming convention (maximum 8-character file name and 3-character extension).
If the WebCenter Content weblayout directory is on a file system with 8.3 semantics, the legacy 16-bit 8.3 file names will conflict with revision labels and cause file loss.
To disable the 8.3 file naming convention on a Windows Operating System:
Open the Windows Registry Editor (regedit), and go to the following key:
Set the value of the NtfsDisable8dot3NameCreation key to 1.
Restart the Windows operating system for the change to take effect.
The Installation Guide for Content Server, WCC 12c omits this information, it is actually still required installing 11g or 12c on a Windows environment.
