Issue #2179 wontfix

view at revision and visual diff fails if file path long enough

Depending on tools, the file is either shown non-existant, or some error is shown. From TortoiseMerge I got an error dialog showing "Can't open file" trying to access file under c:\users\account\appdata\local\temp\thg + something + the whole repository file path.

Seems that the resulting path is more than 255 chars, i.e. too long for windows ?

    it's quite possibly a path length issue. You can set $TEMP to C:\temp that would help; but not necessarily fix it entirely. Windows offers no good solutions for this.
