Cannot install Jenkins agent in path with blanks


      On Windows XP Microsoft had the strange idea to default user profiles in a folder named "Documents and Settings" – with blanks in it!

      Jenkins is unable to install an agent in such a folder. The problems seems that the derived service name will then contain blanks, which is not a problem for Windows apparently (one can go to the services GUI and press START, which actually starts the Jenkins agent service), but for Jenkins: Jenkins cannot start that service (will timeout).

      If 8.3-Support is enabled, one can workaround by providing the abbreviated 8.3 name. But administrators can (and will sometimes) disable 8.3 support.

      So Jenkins must learn to install a agent in such a folder.
