If you have the chance to choose shortnames yourself, why not use some
readable ones then instead of mimicking the OS algorithm that produces
quite ugly ones?

Like "progs86", "msvc-12", "winkits" in these cases, for instance. Just a
thought. As far as I know, there is nothing that would require a shortname
to contain a tilde; that is just what the OS uses to minimise the risk of
clashing with existing human-readable names.

But of course, I don't suggest you go back and redo it like that. Just
something for others to consider in the future if they need to do it.
