Modify filenames under Windows to support all characters that Windows considers valid for a file name.

Currently, some characters that Windows deems valid for a a file name are either not accepted, or not processed properly by Synergy.

These characters include single quote, comma and at sign -->   ‘,@

This has been worked on recently and will be included in an up-coming SDI release.

A colleague just pointed out that my earlier comment on this idea was incorrect. I had confused this item with some other similar work that had been done in SDI to enable the use of several additional characters in file and folder names within Visual Studio projects. and hence my reference to SDI in my earlier post.

Clearly, the request here is to support various additional special in the Windows Runtime, allowing, for example, the OPEN statement and others to process folders and files with these special characters in their names.

So apologies if I got anyone's hopes up by incorrectly marking this item as "Coming Soon". Hit that "Vote" button if this is an issue that is important to you.
