Hello,

I get a "Path too long" error in the Diag_console.log for path names over 260 characters long, even if I am using Windows 10 Pro with "LongPathsEnabled" in registry set to "1" and already have paths with more than 260 characters long in the drive that thumbnails are created (just checked it using Path Length Checker).

I've performed one more test, by creating the failed filenames using Windows Notepad as test text files and they were created and edited just right with it.
Both VTM and Videonizer are 64-bit.

Why is this happening?
Thank you.

Hello,

Could you please provide the exact example to check?
And I need to know the circumstances of the issue.

I can provide the Diag_console.log output.

Please let me know if you need more specific information or you're unable to confirm the problem on your own end.

Not an easy task.
It looks like I need to use native Windows API in all cases, because .NET built-in tools have such a limitation.
