on my systems it's running with a single set of " .

The corresponding tag looks like this:

 <execute display='Installing ENU_Q832483_MDAC_X86 ...'>
   <arguments>/C:"dahotfix.exe /q /n" /q:a</arguments>

Btw, I have taken your directory settings in the above mentioned example :} .

Hope that helps
