Just butting in, and not knowing what the original issue was about, I 
would nevertheless guess that you are merely the 1,000,001th (*) user 
victim of the great idea of someone in the long-distant past, to allow 
spaces in file paths.
When you have something like
c:/Documents and Settings/...
  it is always a good idea to quote it, like
"c:/Documents and Settings/..."

(*) the 1,000,000th happened just a few days ago on this same list.

(**) The Apache packagers (who on the other hand are very bright and 
helpful and generous people) have unfortunately decided so far to follow 
this stupid MS lead, by using "Apache Group" as a path element under 
Windows.  It never ceases to cause grief.
