      Description

      In PUP-4854 we reduced the amount of characters that PMT uses so that it allows for longer module paths to be installed. It helps with longer paths in modules, but it doesn't address the issue completely. We should instead look to use "\\?\" prepended to the path to allow for up to 32,000 characters in paths instead of the current MAX_PATH limit of around 260 characters.
