Windows Server Core support for long paths RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    currently i have problems with the Win32 Long Paths surrport on Windows Server Core. On my local Win10 i can create folder structure longer than 260 chars in Command Promt and also in Powershell. 

    When i run a windows server core container on Azure (on a Windows Server 2016) it is not possible to create the same folder. Actually i can create it from Powershell but not from Command Prompt. I added the same registry keys as my local machine (i did it both on the host Server 2016 and on the container). 

    Can you help me out how can i enable the Win32 long path support for the Windows Server Core? (Currently i am using this version: microsoft/windowsservercore:10.0.14393.1715)
