Long File Names in File List Box

 Long File Names in File List Box

I'm developing applications using Visual Basic 5.0 Professional Edition.

One of my applications uses a file-access dialog box I made using the
drive list box, the directory list box and the file list box controls.
I'm developing this app on a Windows98 machine, and when I am listing a
directory where log file names (as opposed to 8.3) exist, they show just
fine in the file list box. However, when I run my app on Windows NT
machines (4.0), the file names are truncated to 8.3 format. Note that on
my NT stations the regular Explorer does indeed display the long file
names, no problem.

What's going on? The VB help system appears to offer no information
about long file names. If anybody can shed any light on this, I'll be
extremely grateful.  Thanks!
