Try SmartPhone Emulator and got DOS 8.3 problem

I am trying to create shortcut icon for the smartphone emulator, I found the following from a site and which is posted by AndyC,

"F:\Progra~1\MICROS~2.NET\COMPAC~1\CONNEC~1\Bin\Emulator.exe" /CEImage "F:\Progra~1\WINDOW~2\wce420\SMARTP~1\EMULAT~1\SP_200~2.BIN" /skin "F:\Progra~1\WINDOW~2\wce420\SMARTP~1\EMULAT~1\SMARTP~1.XML" /MemorySize 64 /Ethernet true“

But...Interesting that I found out I have install the smartphone sdk under “Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\smartphoneSDK\”. Problem comes up when I try to change the switching path. As the shortcut  target cannot be typing in a long string, I need to convert the switching path to be 8.3 format and so that it will be shorter enough. Then, I got error message when try to run the emulator. I try to open a command Prompt and found that I cannot go to the “Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\smartphoneSDK\”, I found out that I have 8 directories which is start from “Microsft....” under “Program Files“. So, I have to use “Micros~x” where x is a number. I try to go into different directories to see if I am getting right by typing “cd [Micros~x]” and “cd..“ again and again with x+1 everytime. I found out that I can only go into the Directories where x is one of [1, 2, 3, 4]. But fail since x is 5. Anyone can tell me the reason???
