[VS 2015] Backslash problem in command line.
I just installed VS 2015 Community and trying to upgrade an old project from 4.8 to 4.10 (the binary version from Epic launcher). I pulled the project from my Git repository and right-click on the .uproject and select 4.10 and generate a new .sln file. When I try to build, I get this error message:
Which is French for "\Epic was unexpected", etc. It seems that the command it tried to run doesn't like the space betwwen Epic and Games in the root directory of the engine.
Any hint on how to correct this ?

After investigating this a little more, it seems that installing the engine in "C:\Program Files (x86)" by default causes the compiler to not recognize anything past (x86) as a valid directory. To test my theory, I simliked this directory to a name with no such special characters and issued a manual compile with the command line and it compiled well.
So I then decided to install the Engine on another directory to avoid any further problems. I first tried to install it in C:\Program Files (next to the "C:\Program Files (x86) directory like in my old Windows 7 machine) but even if I selected that directory, the installer insisted to put it to "C:\Program Files (x86)". So I then dediced to put it in my Documents folder instead and now it works.
