unable to see swish drive through emacs

I'm using emacs 23.2.1 under Windows 7. The Windows File Explorer works well and correctly shows remote files. But when I try to open those same files through emacs, the swish connection is not seen by emacs.
When I try to double-click on a file within the Windows File Explorer, emacs see it as c:/Windows/System32/::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}/::{B816A83A-5022-11DC-9153-0090F5284F85}/sftp:/username@hostname:22/home/blah/blah

Swish isn't a file-system driver so you can't access SFTP drives via the command-line. Emacs has a mode called  TRAMP that does what you are after.
