Darn white spaces!

I've got a problem with folders with spaces, the code is as follows:

Func ButtonFunction6()
$send4 = GUICtrlRead($Input4)
$read = GUICtrlRead($Input1)
;ShellExecute($read & $send4 & ".ipt.thea", " ")
$thea = " C:Program FilesThea Renderthea.exe"
$thea3=   ' -nosplash -load ' &$read  &$send4  &'.ipt.thea -exit'
ShellExecute($thea,  $thea3)

EndFunc

Thea will run fine but if the folder path has a space ie

C:UsersuserDesktopNew Folder

in Thea the batch script croaks with a error failed at line one C:UsersuserDesktopNew

if it was me just using my little program it wouldn't be an issue but the guy I had testing it had 3 folders all with spaces lol

in the old version of this form I used a bat file:

cd C:Program FilesThea Render
thea - load C:temptest2batchmergedbatch.ipt.thea -exit

but I don't really want the form creating extra files if I can avoid it

Put quotes around it:

$thea = "C:\program files"
$thea = '"' & $thea & '"'
ConsoleWrite($thea & @LF)
