Operating system version: 11 x64


It's easier than what I thought it should be, only need to add the following below to the FileZilla interface manifest xml. Patch added.

  <application xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v3">
      <longPathAware xmlns="">true</longPathAware>
	  <activeCodePage xmlns="">UTF-8</activeCodePage>

Windows's long path support

Notes :

Per-folder name is still limited at 260 characters, while Total PATH/Folder Name is limited at 32.767 characters.
Possibly not self-compiled FileZilla client user might be able to add Long Path by using [Resource Hacker] and add that line above inside the FileZilla client manifest.

This change will be applied no sooner than Windows makes long paths the default. As long as most native Windows tools, such as Explorer or Notepad cannot handle long paths, it is not suitable for FileZilla.
