But \bibliography is a LaTeX command.  If the problem occurs when the
.tex file is being processed, it's a TeX problem and TW isn't the

Klaus, whenever you report a problem, please give us at least the
error message you got.  If the error message comes from TeX, the
content of the .log file would be very helpful too.  Statements like
"doesn't work" don't provide much information.

Alain, what do you mean with "TW doesn't accept spaces in path."?  
I can't believe that.  I'm quite confident that they are supported by
Qt and thus by TeXworks.  What exactly do you have in mind?

BTW, all operating systems in use today support spaces in file names.
If a particular program doesn't, IMO it's a bug which has to be fixed.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
