    In Windows XP, when I run "Petz 3.exe" under
    compatibility mode for Windows98/ME, it changes the
    filename to "PETZ3~1.EXE", and the program doesnt work
    unless it is named exactly "Petz 3.exe". How can I
    prevent it from changing the filename?

    Spaces in filenames and "compatibility mode" are mutually exclusive. You
    can't have ol' DOS suddenly become able to handle spaces.
