Bypass windows MAX_PATH


I got an issue where my only option is to disable windows MAX_PATH.
I’ve tried to run:

      - name: 'Disable windows MAX_PATH'
        shell: pwsh
        run: |
         New-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem" ` -Name "LongPathsEnabled" -Value 1 -PropertyType DWORD -Force

This step is executed ok and I get the correct powershell feedback but the following step which must have the MAX_PATH disabled still fails. Any idea why and what can I do about it?
