Cmdline cannot handle spaces in the file name

description

I'm trying to import chapters using the command line tool. The following command fails with 'Cannot read or modify m4v File.'

drax.exe /import:"T:\movies\renders\2012\2012.01.11 - Winter Gala at Kinder Care.txt" /file:"T:\movies\renders\2012\2012.01.11 - Winter Gala at KinderCare.mp4"

However, it works file once I remove all spaces from the file name:

drax.exe /import:"T:\movies\renders\2012\20120111WinterGalaKinderCare.txt" /file:"T:\movies\renders\2012\20120111WinterGalaKinderCare.mp4"

NOTE: CodePlex escapes my double quotes above as "

Somehow I was not able to reproduce this issue in Drax 1.6.5.0.

As described, for chapters I used the filename:
C:\Temp 2\2012.01.11 - Winter Gala at Kinder Care.txt

And for the movie itself I used the filename:
C:\Temp 2\2012.01.11 - Winter Gala at KinderCare.mp4

So, the following command line worked perfectly:
drax.exe /import:"C:\Temp 2\2012.01.11 - Winter Gala at Kinder Care.txt" /file:"C:\Temp 2\2012.01.11 - Winter Gala at KinderCare.mp4"

I noticed that your filenames of the chapters file and the movie file are different (well, except for the file extension). E.g., there is a space between Kinder and Care in the chapters file - is this the problem?

Yes, you're right. I'm sorry for the false alarm.
