Executing custom command from menu causes error

With ACT 2011: I created a custom command linked to an ACT WP tpl file. I added it to a menu. When I click the menu entry the error below appears. The template works correctly if I use Write>Email Message (from template) or Write>Mail Merge.

Is there something else I need to do?

Can you show your custom command setup?
It will also merge to word rather than e-mail.

When I created the custom command I just browsed to the tpl file as you can see in the attached image. I've just discovered that if I enclose the path/file name in quotes I don't receive the error shown above and the document opens in edit mode in ACT WP. Apparently what caused the error was that my path name had spaces in it and ACT parsed it incorrectly.

Now that I've enclosed the path/file name in quotes, I guess the real question is: how do I get ACT to use this template to create an email? Do I prefix the path name with a command of some sort?
