I need to run an action in command prompt. It looks like this:

C:\Program Files\[folder]\[folder]\action.exe
'C:\Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

It says 'C:\Program' not 'C:\Program Files\...'etc. so it has to be a problem with
the space. Is there any way to type it with no space? Or another solution?

If I remember right you need to use quotations when dealing with spaces, so your new command would simply be:

"C:\Program Files\[folder]\[folder]\action.exe"

Let me know if that works for you
