Hmm.  So now the question becomes, where is your S-Plus?

In the emacs *scratch* buffer enter

(dos-canonical-name "d:/Program Files/Insightful/Splus70")
followed by C-j
This is a Gnu Emacs command.  I don't know if it works in Xemacs.

On my system, with the default location for S-Plus, it reports

(w32-short-file-name "c:/Program Files/Insightful/Splus70")

If it doesn't work, then go to the MS-DOS prompt window (enter CMD at the
Start/Run entry) and type dir/x to find out what the correct 8.3 abbreviation
is for your setup.  It is usually progra~1, but it doesn't have to be that.
