The old 8.1 style path might work in that situation, it's something good to know...

Such as: C:\PROGRA~1\

^Where the number = the occurrence of that string in the directory in alphabetical order.

To determine the "short path" name of a directory, CD to one level up and run dir /x


01/17/19 03:38 PM <DIR> PROGRA~1 Program Files
01/14/19 10:41 AM <DIR> PROGRA~2 Program Files (x86)

If you work that somehow into what you are doing, it may solve the issue...

"D:\PROGRA~1\mkvtoolnix\mkvmerge.exe"


Ideally quote escaping etc. is better, if possible... assuming there is no code that demands the 8.1 format.
