Specify the Arguments within Quotes
If the file path to the arguments contains spaces, specify them within quotes. For example, if you are installing MS Office application by specifying the MSP file as argument and if the file path to the MSP file contains spaces, you should specify the path to the MSP file within quotes:
\\DCShare\Shared Utilities\Office 2007 Enterprise Install Disk\setup.exe /adminfile "\\DCShare\Shared Utilities\Office 2007 Enterprise Install Disk\office2007autoinstall.MSP"
In the above example, the directory Office 2007 Enterprise Install Disk has spaces in the directory name and hence it has been enclosed within quotes.
