Yet another thing I learn about windows… This is surprising to me, I remember fighting a machine not binding to AD because it had a single quote (iirc) in its machine name. Does the single quote character have any special significance win the windows command line? (and while I’m asking, where do back-ticks and apostrophes fall?)

So is the ffescape tool compiled differently to work properly when compiled on/for windows?
