digitalmars.D.learn - executeShell not working

reply FoxyBrown <Foxy Brown.IPT> writes:
auto sss = "sc config \""~szSvcName~"\" start= disabled";
executeShell("sc config \""~szSvcName~"\" start= disabled");

but if I copy and paste the string in to an admin console, it 
works fine:

sc config "W32Time" start= disabled
[SC] ChangeServiceConfig SUCCESS

szSvcName is W32Time.

It's not an admin issue.

I *can't* set it to other states either. Does executeShell not 
run it's process with the same rights as the app?

even spawnProcess isn't doing it spawnProcess(["C:\\Windows\\System32\\sc.exe","config", szSvcName, "start=","disabled"]); or spawnProcess(["C:\\Windows\\System32\\sc.exe","config "~szSvcName~" start= disabled"]);
