You might be able to use the 8 character dos representation of the path.
c:\TEMP>mkdir "a b c" mkdir "a b c" c:\TEMP>dir /X dir /X Volume in drive C is OSDisk Volume Serial Number is 20C0-F388 Directory of c:\TEMP 03/20/2010 06:32 PM <DIR> . 03/20/2010 06:32 PM <DIR> .. 03/20/2010 06:32 PM <DIR> ABC~1 a b c 0 File(s) 0 bytes 3 Dir(s) 28,588,097,536 bytes free
So, you could reference a file with c:/temp/ABC~1 as the directory path.
But, I guess you might be getting the directory at runtime, and it can always have spaces in it? Maybe they could give you the path with the dos representation? Maybe the "BLAH" that noons works for you?
