do not use equal sign in paths in windows or make sure to use dbl quotes...

env: windows 10

so basically, when a path contains an equal sign, for example:


a command like this:

rmdir d:\some_folder\=some_other_folder\some_even_deeper_nested_folder\and_so_on

will be effectively evaluated as:

rmdir d:\some_folder

a fix? appears to be simple (notice the dbl quotes!):

rmdir "d:\some_folder\=some_other_folder\some_even_deeper_nested_folder\and_so_on"
