Invalid Characters in path

Recommended Posts

When I click a certain Windows game I get an error saying Invalid characters in path and LaunchBox crashes.  I can't even right-click the game to edit or delete it without getting the error.  It worked fine last time I played it and I didn't change anything.  The game still works with the Windows shortcut.  Here are the details of the error:

I was able to fix it by editing the windows.xml file.  It somehow added quotes around the application path.
