    a space in a program path

    I'm trying to make a program open some other programs so when i want to use them i can just click that one. One of these is C:\Program files\mozilla.org\Mozilla\mozilla.exe.

    I thought system("C:\\Program files\\mozilla.org\\Mozilla\\mozilla.exe");
    would work, but it tries opening c:\program. How do I get it to work correctly?
