    I recently swapped PSP 8 with PSP X to open binaries in my news browser. I use
    Forte Agent. Used to be, with PSP 8, regardless of what the file name was, if I
    double clicked on it, the picture opened up in PSP8. Now, with PSP X, , if there
    are spaces anywhere in the file name, i.e. vintage airplane.jpg , as opposed to
    vintageairplane.jpg, it won't open. PSP launches momentarily but there's no
    picture to see. Anyone have any ideas as to why this happens? I'm using Windows
    7 Professional 64 bit. If you see this post elsewhere, I'm also posting in the
    Windows 7 and Agent newsgroups. Thanks.

    My guess is that there are quotation marks missing somewhere, either
    in Agent or in your general file associations for those filetypes.
    Quote marks are required when filenames include spaces, but are
    optional otherwise.

    If your setup works with files that don't contain spaces but fails
    when spaces are present, it's probably missing quotes. I don't use
    your versions of software, so I can't tell you exactly where and what
    to click.
