I had a quick play with altering the configuration string and could not make it work - I may not have tried double quoting. Windows handles the command line differently than *nix for quote characters of various types in any case and that may have been where the problem was.

    Mostly, Windows is very braindead about commandlines and doesn’t handle quoting in any particular fashion at all, so every program involved in the execution of another adds its own conventions/complexities; sometimes irresolvable ones.
