    Because the ‘Search tool’ in Solidworks is strictly related to Windows® Desktop Search (actually the indexing comes from WDS), the total number of characters is 255 (limitation coming from the operating system itself).

    In case any path exceeds that number the best suggestion is to use mapped drives.
