Try putting quotation marks around the command.

You soround it in quotes...

"d:\nicol\hello this.exe"

so things like...

copy "d:\nicol\hello this.exe" "c:\my documents"

will work.

To run the .exe file try d:\nicol\hello\this.exe

Did you Google for an answer before asking the question?

the % signs around a word or number means it's a variable, Google it if you want to know what that is, but in this case just surround it in double quotes ".
and if it says that the file isn't found, that means you've got the name/directory wrong.

Perhaps you could help people to help you.

What is this file "hello this"? Is it an executable program. And where does it reside? In the directory "D:\nicol"?

I can only think that the answer to one of these questions is "No", otherwise the advice that you have been given (to use the statement "D:\nicol\hello this.exe") would work. So what is the exact situation, and what is the file supposed to do?

Gracious! That's completely different to the question that you initially asked.

Use the command:

attrib +r

to make the file read-only. You can't really make it unreadable, but you can make it hidden by using the command

attrib +h

I think we are all misunderstanding what you are trying to say. So, I suggest instead of using English, you just copy and paste your commands and error messages you get in the command prompt window. Start by doing a DIR D:\ and then do a DIR D:\NICOL and show us the output.
