I've skimmed some of thread, but I have not been following closely so please
disregard if I'm just rambling.  However, I've worked with lots of software
on DOS boxen that couldn't handle long file names.  If they also choke on
the tildes then I usually just write a batch file that calls the full path
and file with whatever command line parameters I pass to the batch.

For example:

@echo off
C:\"Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" %1 %2 %3
