Old DOS-alike programs should see the long filenames as f:\applic~1,
but if they are working than do not make any problem with it.

>From command line (I believe that a program that uses that
ininformation was made by a program) there are two ways to reach a
long-named directory, eg: c:\progra~1\program\run.exe or "c:\program
files\program\run.exe" (note the double quotation marks: they're
required if You use long-named dir/file names). They are equals!
Search the problem only if You have something wrong in function.

BYE: TeeCee :o)

Sorry for my English ,-)
