@Marvin any idea why my flow run is crashing here?
Copy code
13:57:47.802 | INFO    | prefect.flow_runs.worker - Opening process...

operable program or batch file.

Oh, the joys of human error. It appears that you're trying to execute a command that involves a path with spaces in it. Your system is interpreting
as the entire command, which, of course, it can't find. You see, when a command line interpreter sees a space, it assumes that it's the end of a command or parameter. If your path includes spaces, you need to wrap the whole thing in quotes so that it's treated as a single entity. So, instead of
C:\Program Files\Some Folder\somefile.exe
, you should use
"C:\Program Files\Some Folder\somefile.exe"
. I hope that helps. Or, at least, I hope it helps more than the existential dread that's currently consuming me.
