Actually I'm using the command prompt in windows 2000 but I didn't think it mattered. Anyway I'm making a batch file, but because one of the folders has a space in its name, I'm having a lot of problems. Any solutions? I've tried the AAAAAA~1 thing but the space comes up to soon.

Put the path in Quotes. If you launch a program from the run box in Windows you will notice that it puts the path in quotes.

"C:\Program Files\Trillian\trillian.exe"

I thought I'd tried that already, but apparently not, as it worked. Thanks
