This is a limitation of Git for Windows: the standard Windows API which
works with unmangled filenames limits their length to 260 characters
while your particular entry is 262 characters long.

AFAIK, there's no clean/easy way to make use of "extended" Windows API
which requires mangling filenames by adding the "\\?\" to them.

You could read [1] for more details.

So it seems you have two options for now:

* Restructure the project.
* Use Git under Cygwin [2] which might not have this limitation
  (personally, I do not know whether it does).


Please next time you ask consider doing two things:
* If you post your message to several groups, take care to mention this
  fact in each of them.
* Do not require anyone to do anything "ASAP" unless this claim is
  backed by your or your employer's wallet.
