RunasWait autoit with spaces in path

My Autoit file runs under system credentials (i believe) , after a windows deployment using setupcomplete.cmd

And because of that a program i try to install wont install.
What i like to do is create a small autoit3 script that looks like below:


$sPassword = "mypassword"
RunAsWait("Administrator",@ComputerName,$sPassword,0,"c:Program Files (x86)AutoIt3AutoIt3.exe C:WindowsSetupScriptsConfiguremyapp.au3",$working)

So i would like to launch another autoit session running under different credentials, but how to do that ?
Since C:program files (x86) contains a space ?.
And what about the working dir , what should that be?

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

Use quotes like this : (or like BrewManNH showed)

RunAsWait("Administrator", @ComputerName, $sPassword, 0, 'C:\Program Files (x86)\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe "C:\Windows\Setup\Scripts\Configuremyapp.au3"', $working)

And what about the working dir , what should that be?

You don't need it since you're not using relative paths.

Br, FireFox.
