Try something like "C:\PROGRA~1\" instead of "C:\Program Files\". It usually
helps in case of problems concerning with spaces in the path and old
Since MSDOS names should have only 8 chars long, at maximum, and no spaces
or special chars. So, if you have a directory with more than 8 chars, you
can use an abbreviation of it using the first 6 and adding '~1' at the end.
If you have more than one directory starting with the same first 6 chars,
'~2' and '~3' can be used. 
I believe that this notation can also be used for file names.

Best regards,

I am still getting the same issue with this that I was having with all
versions since 3.  The audio and video services do not start when I enter a
venue.  Attached are my log files of the services.  I believe that the
problem is to do with the fact that there are spaces in the path to the
executable (at least if I put the executable in inverted commas, it goes
away).  This does not appear to affect everyone, but I have seen it happen
on systems other than mine, so I don't think this is an isolated issue.
