"os.system(r'dir Program Files')"
doesn't work either. nor does
c:\> "dir program files"
at the command prompt.
(when you get this far, you should have
realised how to fix this... but alright, I'll
spell it out:
c:\> dir "program files"
os.system('dir "program files"')
but in this specific case, you should use
"os.listdir" or perhaps "glob.glob" instead,
but that's another story...)
