 Shell command and long filenames

I have no problems using spaces in file paths.
  are you sure your syntax is correct? What version of VB are you using?
This works for me:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim Z As Long
Z = Shell("C:\Program Files\Plus!\Themes.exe, vbNormalFocus)
End Sub

No Problems...
