    3303303. Flukes on Windows 
    331331 * Windows poses some challenges for Java applications (like Flukes), primarily from the perspective of specifying paths. In Java properties files, the "\" character, which is used as a path separator in Windows, is treated as an "escape" character (which means that it has special properties for changing the meaning of a single character immediately following it). 
    332  * The resolution to this issue is to use the "/" character for any path specified in a Java properties file on Windows, rather than "\". For example, "C:\Users\ExampleUser" would be written as "C:/Users/ExampleUser" instead.

    334334 * Another issue on Windows is a long-standing Java bug with the discovery of the user's home directory; the bug itself is described here: [http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=4787931]
