Well, just don't do that. I mean, remove it and re-install it in a path 
without spaces.  Paths with spaces in them are ridiculous, dangerous, 
confusing, a quoting nightmare, change for each language, and will 
always bite you somewhere.  The guy who invented them should have gotten 
an Ig-Nobel prize, and should have his pension and all his assets 
impounded to pay for all the programming and debugging hours he caused 
to be lost.  The other guys at the "Program\ files/Apache\ Software 
Foundation/Tomcat\ 5.5" who endlessly reproduce the same mistake should 
be fired.  I take that back; they can't be fired because they get no 
salary. But they should be named.
