Would you mind giving the shortcut thing a try with the same path I have? Im sure if you get the "Windows cant create a shortcut here. Do you want to place the shortcut to the desktop instead?" you will know whats going on.
I tried that, and yes it does complain about the shortcut. This is expected as Windows has access control for writing inside system folder 'Program Files', although I don't have problem running the program with the long folder name. Maybe the access control is the cause of your problem. Can you simply try extracting the 7zip archive to other place and run from it?
Sorry maybe I wasnt clear with my message.
With the long path you cant make a shortcut, with the short one you can, so I still believe its somehting to do with the path.
I got it to work so I am fine. Im just telling if this is something that someone will find interesting. I still believe the original issue with error messages about missing files, could be related to some previous session saved states/settings type of thing. As I dont know how and where things like last opened part info is stored, I can only do guess work.
