I have a gradle C++ multi-project build, but am getting the following error from Visual Studio when trying to compile on our build server:
’…\myFile.obj" exceeds windows path limitation of 260 character.
Indeed the path is longer than 260 characters, which is a problem caused by a number of things:
- the default location of our Jenkins workspace directory
- the length of the project name (25 chars)
- the length of the subdirectories that Gradle uses within the build directory for the object files
Is there any way to change the third of these? Or is there a solution that gets around the limitation somehow?
