Hello, I use this code scheme to disable or enable Windows services:

var process = Process.Start("sc.exe", "config syncagentsrv start= disabled");

But I'm having trouble deactivating a service because it has spaces in its name:
Tib Mounter Service

What I have tried:

I've tried several ways, like the ones below, but none works:

var process = Process.Start("sc.exe", "config Tib Mounter Service start= disabled");

var process = Process.Start("sc.exe", "config 'Tib Mounter Service' start= disabled");

Surround the name with double quotes, not single, just like you do on the command line. But, in C#, you have to escape the quotes so they become part of the string:
var process = Process.Start("sc.exe", "config ""Tib Mounter Service"" start= disabled");

Thank you so much. It worked! I had been burning my neurons for weeks after this solution! Thanks buddy!
