Can't run sen2cor

I recently having a hard time to run sen2cor with SNAP. I already followed the instruction from this Sen2cor (detailled instructions) and the problem still exist. After doing trial and error, I managed to run L2A_process.bat with no problem. But running sen2cor from cmd is to hassle for me, so I tried again to fix my problem with sen2cor in SNAP.
Going through several threads in this forum I suddenly realised the problem.First I change the folder’s name from Sentinel-2 imagery zip. Second, it seems that sen2cor won’t run on a directory that has spaces on it. Because of that I have to change my user folder name. And voila, it works! So to summarize, you need to consider these things before running sen2cor:

  1. Your computer user name has no space in it, if it happens to had it please refer to this link https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/89060-change-name-user-profile-folder-windows-10-a.html
  2. Don’t change the folder’s name of the satellite imagery, just leave it that way.
  3. You can download sen2cor from http://step.esa.int/main/third-party-plugins-2/sen2cor/ and then install it Locally in SNAP if you having an unstable internet connection.

That’s all from me, I hope someone could learn from my problem. Thank you for the community that provide some helps to my problem.
ps: I installed SNAP 7.0 and sen2cor 2.80
