Windows NT PIF Editor can't save long filenames or use names with spaces.


PIF Editor is a 32-bit application and should therefore be able to deal with long filenames or a space in a filename. However, since PIF Editor is dedicated to Virtual DOS Machine (VDM) support, it is limited (by design) to the eight-character filename, three character extension (8.3) convention.
