    a file path problem

    I use this line of code:
    Code:
    system("C:\\My Programs\\game.exe");
    It doesn't work. I debugged and found out that it doesn't recognize the space between the words 'My' and 'Programs'. It thinks the path ends with space and doesn't read more.

    Then try:
    system("\"C:\\My Programs\\game.exe\"");

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.
