      Description

      When installing an MSI, the windows package provider passes the package source parameter to msiexec.exe. Unfortunately, it <b>must</b> use backslashes, otherwise, msiexec thinks it's a command line argument and will fail with a cryptic error: <pre>Failed to install: Fail on INT 24.</pre>

      The windows package provider should automatically convert the source to backslashes so that it just works.
