      Vim sometimes has problems on paths containing spaces, but they can be
      around. When I was on Windows (XP), I had [g]vim installed in (at the
      "C:\Program Files\Vim\vim64" and "C:\Program Files\Vim\vim70aa"; my VIM
      environment variable was set (globally) to C:\PROGRA~1\VIM, VIMRUNTIME
      unset (outside of Vim), and I never had any problem. It ought to be just
      easy on Vista.

      Best regards,
