No problem with file names with spaces here.
What TeX Distribution is being used? Is it recent and up to date? What editor/front end is being used? What version of that editor/front end is being used? What OS version is being used? Is the person using some advanced features (e.g., custom engines for TeXShop) of their editor to do the typesetting?
What has to be done depends upon the answers to those questions.
