  • Scope: desktop IDE
  • Version: 0.28.1
  • OS: Windows 10

Steps to reproduce

  1. Start XOD on behalf of a user with spaces in the name (ex: C:\Users\Foo Bar Qux)
  2. Hit Deploy → Upload

Expected behavior

I can choose a board and upload successfully

Actual behavior

I get an error saying «… unknown command “Bar” for “arduino-cli” … »

How to fix

Enquote the argument of --config-file and other path arguments. Currently, the shell is asked to run (line breaks added for clarity):

"C:\Users\Foo Bar Qux\AppData\Local\Programs\XOD IDE\resources\arduino-cli.exe"

Ok, as I am a newby, do I do that in the code I'm trying to compile or in the source code for XOD. If its the later it is well outside my pay grade.
