Cannot Enable Long Path Names on a Win 32 machine running Win 10 1909

I have tried all three methods described on this page, to enable long path names on a 32 bit machine running Windows 10 1909 Build 18363

The only minor difference is with the gpedit option which refers to the NTFS "Enable LongPathNames" whereas, on a win 32 machine it says "Enable Win 32 LongPathNames"

3 reboots later, all have failed.

Anyone got a better suggestion?
