[Buildbot-devel] Windows 8 shell command

Hi All,

I am passing a string with spaces to a shell command for a windows 8 
build slave and getting an error.  It seems the " is being prepended 
with a ^, this doesn't happen when I pass the same string to a windows 7 
build slave.  Here is a sample of the string as returned in the stdio 
log for the step.

^"c:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.1\bin\SetEnv.cmd^" /Release 
/x64 ^&^&

Can anyone tell me why this is happening and how to work around it, I am 
using Buildbot 0.8.7p1.

Many thanks,
