Long path support
When using CAST AIP, the path of some log files and other internal files may exceed the total number of characters permitted for a path in Microsoft Windows (260 characters by default). This is especially true when enabling the User Input Security feature for .NET and JEE techologies. When a path exceeds 260 characters, the analysis (or feature) would usually crash, for example the User Input Security would crash with the errors "System.IO.PathTooLongException" or "System.InvalidOperationException".
To avoid crashes due to situations where the long path limitation is exceeded, two changes need to be made:
- Enable long path support in Microsoft Windows (Windows 10/Windows Server 2016 or above only) - see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/fileio/naming-a-file#enable-long-paths-in-windows-10-version-1607-and-later for more information.
- Use CAST AIP ≥ 8.3.13 and, where appropriate:
CAST AIP no longer installs any files to the %COMMONPROGRAMFILES% location
