Have you tried using '/' as the directory delimiter, instead of '\'?
That usually works on Windows, and is preferable when dealing with
unix-oriented tools. A Windows directory or file name is not allowed to
contain a '/', so there's no chance of ambiguity; either basically works
fine with most software.
