    #include<stdlib.h>
    int main()
    {
    system("c:\\progra~1\\access~1\\mspaint.exe c:\\windows\\file.bmp");
    return 0;
    }


    Don't forget the use the MSDOS format for the path of the file.

    If you have a reasonably up to date compiler, which is long filename aware, then yes

    If you're still using fossil-dos-C from long ago, then you're out of luck.
