proc.StartInfo.Arguments = "D:\Pre Requisite Utility";

Am passing path string as argument, but am getting this "D:\Pre" in other application. this is whole one path but spaces are making it as 3 arguments, "D:\Pre" ,"Requisite","Utility". i want to send complete path as one. how can i do this.


Thanks in advance for help.

Arguments property is a list of arguments, separated by space.

If you want to pass an argument (or more than one) containing spaces, you have to surround them with double quotation marks.

proc.StartInfo.Arguments = "D:\Pre Requisite Utility";

have to be changed to

proc.StartInfo.Arguments = "\"D:\\Pre Requisite Utility\"";

When you have multiple arguments, you have to surround them one by one, like:

proc.StartInfo.Arguments = "\"First argument\" \"Second argument\" \"Third argument\"";

Note that this is the same behavior from old DOS.

Daniele.

right now am converting spaces into %,
.Replace(' ','%') 
but is there another better way to do this?
