Export definition throws FileNotFoundException


On latest windows 10 machines SoupUI export definition is failing with the following exception: D:\a\EDS_1_2_3_4_5_6_7_8_9_10_11_12_13_14_15_16_17_18_19_20_21_22_23_24_25_26_27_28_29_30_31_32_33_34_35_36_37_38_39_40_41_42_43_44_45_46_47_48_49_50_51_52_53_54_55_56_57_58_59_60_61_62_63_64_65_66_67_68_69_70_71_72_73_74_75_76_77_78_79_80_81_82_83_84_85_86.xsd (The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect)


This is since windows does not allow file paths of size more than 256 characters. Looks like this is a long standing problem and would like to see it fixed.


Thanks and regards,

      Thanks for your reply.

      I already tried that but without success. According to what I read, "it only enables support for applications that declare they can support it in their manifest with the "longPathAware" declaration.".


      It looks like SoupUI doesn't have this declared in its manifest and so is still failing. Can we generate xsd definitions with short file names instead so that it can work in all platforms?
