Hello Travis Dev and other people that will read this post,
Congratulations for the Windows support !!
Even if it is in Early access stage, I would like to give you some feedback about a problem that I have encountered on Windows build.
For some context, I’ve tried to set up on the c++ windows environnement on Travis for the company I’m working for, and I have encountered a problem during the checkout of the repository in the windows build.
It seems that the environment can’t checkout files with a long path/filename with can occurs on some repositories. This is a recurring problem on git with windows, we already have faced it on our local machine, and we had to run the command
git config --system core.longpaths true to fix the problem.
But on Travis, the repository is checked out early, so I don’t know how I can run the command
git config --system core.longpaths true before the windows build start checking out our repository, or if you have to integrate this command line from your side of Travis.
I hope that I’ve been clear about the problem I’m facing.
Thanks again for your amazing work.
Thanks in advance for your time,
