I deleted a couple of empty folders, but I still can not get Firefly to start.
Microsoft documentation says the maximum file length is 256 characters, althought that’s clearly not it. Newer nightlies have expanded that to 512. Surely the path length there isn’t greater than 512 bytes, is it?
I think that’s what you are hitting.
You can try latest nightlies at http://nightlies.mt-daapd.org. That fixes some unicode file things, as well as the path length issue.
