Hi ranchers.
I want to use java.exe or javaw.exe to run a JAR file just like this

java -jar C:\AAA\file.jar

It worked

But it not worked if the folder name is "A A" a space between 2 'A', like

java -jar C:\A A\file.jar

a error: "Unable to access jarfile c:\A"

Is that means we cant use the two commands if there are spaces in folder name?
Thank you!

The JDK's version is 1.6 update 6

You need to run it as java -jar C:\"A A"\file.jar (Notice the quotes around A A)
