Then this program is broken by design. Wine does not and will not support windows' stile 8.3 names for long file names (foo~1.bar) - it's patented and not guaranteed to work even on windows in all cases.

If you have a software that can't cope with paths that contains anything but ascii characters - take it back and demand your money back. Coders that produce that stuff deserve to be left without job.
