Hi All,
I have an issue where I am unable to delete a file where the path name is
longer than 256 characters.
Interesting enough, the error as reported from Windows
(SysErrorMessage(GetLastError)) reports that Windows is unable to find the
path specified.
I have even tried renaming the file so that it is shorter (within the full
path) but I am unable to do that as Windows complains of the same error
It lookis like it is a temeporay internet file that explorer has created
(if that helps)

Any ideas?

Lazarus 1.2 RC1 Windows Server 2003
