Hi All,
I want to execute a exe from command line through java. I have the following code snippet..

But it throws the following error, when i read the errorstream from the process
'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command
Do anyone have a better way of doing this?


Thanks & Regards,<br />Nijeesh.

Move your *.exe file to a folder path without spaces.

I cannot change the folder settings . Since it is not under my control.

Use

to derive the 8.3 (short) name of the directories with spaces. Then try using the shortened path in your command.
For example, "Program Files" usually (always?) translates to "PROGRA~1".
