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~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
