I wanted to open write a wrapper (VBS)

When i define Application as this in the first line

objAppName = """mmc %SystemRoot%\system32\dsa.msc"""

It works fine for me.

However i need to open another msc (mmc console application) which is located in E: and has spaces in the path

objAppName = """mmc E:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager Console\AdminUI\bin\adminconsole.msc"""

This doenst Work

Is there anyway i can make it work

I tried adding " at various places but i am not able to make it work as it doesnt recognize the path correctly i believe the space between Program and Files is causing issue

100% it is the issue with space and right place of quotes.

This may works in your case.
objAppName="""C:\windows\system32\mmc.exe"" E:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager Console\AdminUI\bin\adminconsole.msc"

Open in new window

Ok I figured out the best way to do it

When i used objAppName =  """mmc \""E:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Configuration Manager Console\AdminUI\bin\adminconsole.msc\"""""

My script worked after that.

thanks for all your help.
