Altiris packages with long/dense paths cannot be uploaded
We are working on importing software packages into Altiris to make available for distribution. Some of these applications are Engineering applications and have very dense (long or deep) folder paths. Due to the fact that the Altiris file locations (\\servername\share\guid...) are very deep as well, we are unable to upload these packages into Altiris and make them available. We have even specified a UNC location as an alternate location, but the path is still too long. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue and has found a workaround. These applications are very common, such as Catia, Hyperworks, etc.
I understand the character limitation is a Windows limitation, but I would hope we're not the only ones who have experienced this issue and also hope someone can help shed some light on a workaround for us.
I would appreciate any help or guidance anyone can provide with this strange situation!
