What is wrong with this command:

c:\move xxxyyy.dll C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Google Earth Pro\Plugins

I'm in an elevated Command Prompt and the error I receive is The syntax of the command is incorrect


If there is a space in any directory when using the command line for anything in Windows, add quotes, otherwise Windows doesn't know whether the text after a space is part of the directory or not:

move C:\xxxyyy.dll "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Google Earth Pro\Plugins"
