aaApi_FetchDocumentFromServer does not allow fetching files with a long directory path even though Windows 10 has removed the limit.
This limit seems to be assumed and enforced by ProjectWise. How to I remove the limit?

My understanding is that you have to opt-in to enable long paths in Windows 10.
I"m not aware of any method to remove the limit from ProjectWise.
I'm assuming that you want to export a document to a folder that is in a long path. Does Import-PWDocuments work for you for importing files in long paths?
If so, looking at the source code, it appears that it requires specifying the path using a prefix of \\?\. Microsoft documents this here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/fileio/maximum-file-path-limitation?tabs=cmd I'm not sure if you can make it work for exporting files from ProjectWise though.
Perhaps you might be able to code around the limitation?
