    Explorer.exe blank error when using Load registry key


    So most of you must be knowing about the "Load" registry entry in

    Code:
    "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows"
    Basically, whatever path to exe you put inside this registry entry, will load at start up.

    There's a lot of information about this on the internet, if you get this error just delete the Load registry key... etc.

    Now, in my case I want to use this key to load a program on startup but whenever I try to put any path in this key, I get the blank Explorer.exe error. Already tested on 3 Windows 10 machines with Build 15063, all 3 machines give the same error.


    Anyone know more about this?

    Yes, the same odd looking error here. Any reason, you want to use that particular key?

    No reason actually, this error started popping up on some of my office PCs so I decided to dig in a little deep.

    Also, I partially solved it. If I add a comma (,) at the end of the path it works. Error goes away.

    But if the entire path has a single space in it, it will still give the Explorer.exe error.
    I tried using double and single quotes but that too didn't work.
