App.Path only returning short path name - Why?

 App.Path only returning short path name - Why?

My VB5 application reads the App.Path to find out where the exe is being run
from, but only returns a short version of the path with tilde ~ replacing
several characters. Any ideas why? The path returned is less than useless. I
run Windows 95 release 2 and see no reason why it should ever return short
file names.
