Problems with runas command line with spaces between file path.

    Question

  • Hi, I don't have much experience with runas command. I need to install a windows service written in C++, such as:

    C:\folder name with spaces>service.exe -install 

    since I need to use runas to run it as admin, the space within the file path gives me error. I've tried the following:

    1. C:\folder name with spaces>runas /user:domain\admin "service.exe -install"

    2. C:\folder name with spaces>runas /user:domain\admin "C:\folder name with spaces\service.exe -install"

    3. C:\folder name with spaces>runas /user:domain\admin "\"C:\folder name with spaces\service.exe\" -install"

    4. C:\folder name with spaces>runas /user:domain\admin "\"C:\folder name with spaces\service.exe -install\""

    but non of above work. So I would like some advice to make the above code works. Thank you.
