Also, remember that if you’re using the Cygwin based Ruby, you’ll need
to use ‘/cygdrive/c/program files/app/cmd.exe’ as your command path.

You need quotes for only single argument. Just:

system (‘c:\Program Files\App\cmd.exe’,“file”)

or

system (’“c:\Program Files\App\cmd.exe” file’)

will work.
