I want to do a command line like:

for /F "tokens=4" %%F in ('c:\spaces spaces\filever.exe /A /D D:\Spaces Other\a.dll') do (set VERSION=%%F)

I encounter a spaces problem. How can I write that command with a paths with spaces.

Thanks, Ido

You should be able to put the path in quotes.

' "c:\spaces spaces\filever.exe" /A /D "D:\Spaces Other\a.dll" '
