Do quotation marks ("") work?
Under W7 symlinks/junctions will work. Also 8.3 (i.e. C:\Micros~1\...)
should work. It's a pita with the spaces in filenames. Even a few MS
tools can't cope with it. Therefore I try to change the default paths
on installation, but not all installers allow you to specify all parts
of the path unfortunately.
