FILEDESCRIPTOR Structure question

    Hello All,

    I am using FILEDESCRIPTOR Structure to describe files and folders on
    the clipboard. This structure only allows for file paths up to MAX_PATH
    characters. If the total length of path + filename exceeds 242
    characters, operations like drag and drop are failing. Does anyone know
    of any format in win 32 API, which supports longers file paths.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Sarada.

    The Windows API is off topic here, it is part of Windows and not part
    of the C++ language.

    Ask in news:comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32.
