      Description

      Official 39781.

      While testing advanced remote desktop I noticed a problem with the short version of long file names.
      When you launch the installer (pwd: 'PARIS'), it extracts the setup to a temporary folder, the first time it works, quit the installation, if you launch the installer again it doesn't find the extracted setup.exe, if you delete the created folder you're able to install again.

      In the first try, the files get extracted to
      c:\documents and settings\ADMINI~1~REA (XP seems to behave like this too.)

      A dir /X there shows:
      ADMINI~1 ADMINISTRATOR
      ADMINI~1.REA ADMINISTRATOR.REACTOS
      ADMINI~2 ADMINI~1~REA

      If I rename with explorer ADMINI~1~REA to ADMINI~2~REA
      a dir /x now shows
      ADMINI~3 ADMINI~2~REA

      That is, the short version of the filename got modified too. In XP this operation doesn't change the short filename version, this could be related to the fact that the installer doesn't find setup.exe the second time it's launched.
