CreateFile and Long Path/Files :: Win32
Is it possible to create a file with a long path name? For example:
I would like to know two properties of CreateFile(). First, is it possible to create a file in a directory that does not exist via CreateFile()? In the example above, directories "testing" and "December 27" do not exist.
std::string pathFile("c:\testing\December 27\newfile.type");
// CreateFile fails
if (::CreateFile(pathFile->c_str(),...) == INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE)
Secondly, is it possible to create directories with spaces between one or more words, i.e. December 27. Notice the space before "2."
