SYMPTOMS

I've configured my project to launch a user program. I'm doing this in the Project Options Output Dialog. The exact program I'm trying to start is:

C:Program FilesInternet ExplorerIEXPLORE.EXE

When I compile my program, I receive the following error message:

--- Error: can't execute
  ' "C:keilUV2KSPAWN.exe" C:Program FilesInternet ExplorerIEXPLORE.EXE'

I receive similar error messages when I try to launch other programs. What's going on?

CAUSE

This error message is caused because of the space in the path name.

RESOLUTION

Enclose the path specified for the User Program in quotes:

"C:Program FilesInternet ExplorerIEXPLORE.EXE"

You may specify parameters for programs enclosed within quotes, however, the parameters must appear outside the quotes.
