Dear Ulrike,

Confirmed. I misunderstood the problem. It is a difficult problem for me.
At present, if a user uses short path names, she/he must redefine
TEMP without using short names and without using quotes.

fsutil behavior set disable8dot3 1
after the next boot, short names are not written on
file system.
