Description

Windows by default have its PATH length limit as 255 characters. On accessing a file with path more than 255 characters, nginx throws an error saying "The system cannot find the file specified".

CreateFile?() "C:\nginx-1.13.12/client-data/patch-resources/linux/redhat/offline-meta/7/7Client/x86_64/extras/os/repodata/245f964e315fa121c203b924ce7328cd704e600b6150c4b7cd951c8707a70394f/245f964e315fa121c203b924ce7328cd704e600b6150c4b7cd951c8707a70394f-primary.sqlite.bz2" failed (3: The system cannot find the path specified)

Thank you for your report.

Please note that it is highly unlikely that this problem will be worked on by nginx developers in a foreseeable future. If you want this to be fixed, consider writing a patch.
