Thanks, Eli, you found my mistake. 
The problem is that I concatenate the directory path in double quotes
and the file name to get: 
"c:/program files/dna/bin"/dna.exe
which obviously doesn√łt work. 

Is there a neat way to append inside the quotes?

Is it correct that emacs outputs:

'c:/program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

when this error is encountered?
