Ernesto enlightened us with:

Why?

launchWithoutConsole("devcon.exe"
    'enable "@USB\VID_0403&PID_6010&MI_00\7&15E4F68&1&0000"')

Or, if you should also be able to send single quotes:

launchWithoutConsole("devcon.exe"
    '''enable "@USB\VID_0403&PID_6010&MI_00\7&15E4F68&1&0000"''')

> The argument itself is a string, but has quotes inside too.

Then use other quotes as string delimiters. Why would you use
something else?
