I'm having difficulty getting the following code to execute:

exec master..xp_cmdshell '"c:\program files\winrar\winrar.exe" x -o+ "\\fs1\myshare\*.zip" "\\fs1\myshare\"'

I'm getting the error msg "'c:\program' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

Any suggestions?
