#1584 closed defect (fixed)

installing srfi-13 on win8 fails (MAX_PATH is too low)

Estimated difficulty:


I am running C5 on win8 and ran into this: chicken-install srfi-13 says "cannot create subprocess".

It is caused by a MAX_PATH being too low.
chicken-do.c uses MAX_PATH to set total cmd length. my win8 MAX_PATH is 260, but my cmdline (including arguments) is longer.

If I replace MAX_PATH with 4096, it works.

Thanks Kristian! Happily this it has already been fixed in 1e006b65 and will be included in the next release (I ran into it as well).
