JSI Tip 4549. W9x truncated folders will not properly migrate to Windows XP?

If you used Disable Long filename preservation for old programs in W9x, these will not be properly migrated when you upgrade to Windows XP.

Windows XP does NOT have the option to disable long file names.

You will end up with a C:\Program Files and C:\Progra~1 folder.
