Since it seems you're getting the folder name from the command line, beware that white space will be used to separate individual command line arguments. If this is happening -- and I'm willing to bet XP that it is -- you'll have to try quoting the entire folder name, ("like this"). I believe there's a way to escape the white space in Windows (I know there is in most *ix shells), so dig into your shell documentation.
