Could someone please express his opinion on this:

The Apache installation is located at [1] (it's a test server), the
logs location folder has been selected as [2] the directory itself of
curse has been pre created.

[1] C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\
[2] C:\ApacheLogs

Now, when setting in httpd.conf the CustomLog as [3] the server fails
to start with the error code (0x1) in the windows system logger [4].

[3] CustomLog "|c:/Program Files/Apache
Group/Apache2/bin/rotatelogs.exe c:/ApacheLogs/access_log 600" common

[4] The Apache2 service terminated with service-specific error 1 (0x1).

While, when setting the CustomLog as [5] the server start normally.

[5] CustomLog "|c:/progra~1/Apache~1/Apache2/bin/rotatelogs.exe
c:/ApacheLogs/access_log 600" common

Is it the only way to treat spacing in windows? i.e by converting the
folders to the 8.3 DOS notation ?

Thanks for thoughts (:
