There is a GetLongPathName method in kernel32.dll that does that.

I found this article, that has a code sample:

Declare Auto Function GetLongPathName Lib "kernel32.dll" _
(ByVal lpszShortPath as string, ByVal lpszLongPath as stringbuilder, ByVal
cchBuffer as integer) _
as Integer
Public Function ToLongPathName (shortName as String) as String
Dim longNameBuffer as New StringBuilder(256)
Dim BufferSize as Integer = longNameBuffer.Capacity
GetLongPathName(shortName, longNameBuffer, bufferSize)
Return longNameBuffer.ToString()
End Function
