InstallShield 2016

Windows operating systems that are 32 bit support long file names. Long file names enable end users to give directories and files more meaningful names. The term long file name refers to both long file names and long paths.

InstallShield provides the long file name functions to facilitate the installation of 16-bit applications and 32-bit applications that do not recognize long file names. It is your responsibility to determine your application’s requirements. InstallShield provides the tools to help you install any kind of application.
