The short path for a directory called 'My Applications' would be 'MYAPPL~1' not 'myappi~1' as you've got it down as. Assuming that there isn't another directory already there that starts 'my appl....' - like 'my apples'.

If you open a DOS window and go into Program Files you will be able to run a dir /x which will show you the 8.3 names for the folders.

Even though you've specified it in the package you can't force a short name that doesn't match with the long name.

Hope this helps,
