Long filenames VS short

 Long filenames VS short

I have a VB prg on my SEND-TO menu.
I can right-click on a file in the Explorer and use SEND-TO
to send its filename to my VB prg.

All is fine EXCEPT if a filename is longer than 8 chars long.
Then my VB prg is passed (via the COMMAND variable) file~123.txt
instead of the long filename.  What's the fix?  I'll take either
1) How to get VB to turn a file~123.txt into its long filename  
2) A better way to pass the selected filenames between the Explorer
   and by VB prg.  (Avoiding the short filename problem altogether.)
