It depends on the version of Windows you're running. Pre-XP, the command
line is limited to 2047 characters. Post-XP, the limit is 8191

There are also limits with regard to the nesting of directories.
Although the Unicode versions of the Windows APi functions support paths
up to 32,767 characters long, many of the command line processor
functions give up after about 260 characters.
