Description:
Doesn't seem to be able to cope with spaces in the path.

Installed in: "f:/Program Files/mysql/bin/mysqld-nt.exe"

this appears as:

Section Name: Files/mysql/bin/mysqld-nt.exe
&
Path to binary: f:/Program

in the Configure Service screen, I haven't noticed this having any adverse affect on other funtionality but you never know.

How to repeat:
Use MySQL Administrator on a system where mysql is installed in the program files directory.

OK I was just logging another bug and have spotted an adverse affect of this.

Changes to startup variables are ineffective (see bug #3519) MySQL Administrator _is_ creating a new section for changes made but because the sevice name has been determined as "Files/mysql/bin/mysqld-nt.exe" they are ineffective on a subsequent restart.

So this does need to be fixed!
