MAX_PATH (in 2022)

Recently started using NSIS (as part of maintaining a series of chocolatey packages). Is there a work around for the MAX_PATH issue?

I have several project where the path length is over 280 characters.

ManifestLongPathAware True
but this only works if the policy has been enabled in the registry in whatever Windows 10 version support was added. Shortcuts to long paths probably don't work and neither does CopyFiles?
