Certain versions of windows have file length limits that are enforced with
Explorer. If you are unzipping - you might try creating a folder at the C-root
and see if that gives you enough characters.
There is a post on the listserv (can't find it right now) about some advice for
dealing with this issue after unzipping.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] paths too long to unzip?
I'm trying to unzip the ArchivesSpace 1.51, and I get errors on two .yml files
in the zip-file.

zip and find them and copy them out individually, but I can't seem to search
the zip - there is some windows trick that is eluding me.
The two files having really long path names (path + filename) are
Has anybody else gotten around this problem? Or does anybody know where in the
filestructure they live, so I can get them out of the zip-file? Do the names
really have to be this long?
