"The emacs reader is seeing eveything after Program as the next command
line argument.
So it can't find file "C:\Program".
On the Bash command line I could write C:/Program\ Files/... but this
doesn't seem to work in Emacs.
Thus I used the DOS 8.3 long name conversion instead. This is really a
anacronism since no-one uses DOS anymore but it still works. "

What about it?

Reading the thread linked above, the problem appears to be that the path to the executable was not quoted, even though it contained a space, so the part of the path that was after the space is interpreted as the first argument. This is normal - all shells and programs with shell-like functionality require proper quoting of commands and arguments in the presence of whitespace and other special characters.
