Once again for the windows guys: how do I pass a path with spaces, like
".\program files\..." to a windows shell start?
get shell("start" && tProg)
works fine, as far as tProg has no spaces. When using e.g. C:\program
files\foo, windows sees only C:\program as the first parameter (the prog to
be started). Setting the whole path into quotes doesn't works either,
because that would be a window title for the start command.
Hmmm must be something very basic what I don't see.
Thanks for any hint
