You take the first 6 characters (ignoring spaces) and then add a tilde ~
and a number.  The number will increment for another directory
alphabetically after the one with the 1 if it reduces to the same 6
characters and so on.

Yours would most likely be: c:\Progra~1\Gammu1~1\bin\gammu.exe

Unless some other directory is alphabetically before one of those and
reduces to the same 6 characters.  For example if you have a c:\Program
or a c:\Program File\Gammu 1.111

I'm pretty sure the dir command will show you the 8.3 name.
