    it should be front slash /instead of \.

    Not at all. Windows accepts both slashes as directory separators, and "\" is actually the canonical form.

    PS — It's "forward slash".

      I kind of like the word/phrase 'front slash'. Otherwise, we might end up calling the other thing a 'backward slash', and that just doesn't sound right :-)
        Let's just call them front slash and back stab, so then we can make a slasher flick :)

    Khen1950fx is in fact correct. C: strongly implies a Windows system and Windows uses \ as the normal path separator. Most Windows applications and the system accept / as an alternative, but not everything.

    True laziness is hard work
