             Bug #: 28995
           Summary: Unable to use named pipes with ">" character in the
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.3.32
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: kernel32
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: valentyn.pavliuchenko at gmail.com
    Classification: Unclassified

I have an app (Avid VENUE software) that uses pipes to work. The app fails to
launch because of pipe name contains a character ">".

MSDN says:

The pipename part of the name can include any character other than a backslash,
including numbers and special characters. The entire pipe name string can be up
to 256 characters long. Pipe names are not case sensitive.

App logs show the following:

23.957 CreateFile error '\\.\PIPE\D-Show Pipe GUI->DM': Invalid name.

Changing ">" to "_" by direct editing executable files makes problem disappear.
