sure it works fine command line as a path.... if you escape the colon, or use single quotes... otherwise the colon will throw it off.

if your like getting that string, and pulling it into a string variable, you can do some simple string manipulation to add a \ in front of the :'s .. or just add single quotes tot he front and back, which would be easier, since you need to already quote it.

What are you actually doing though?  there might be a much better way to find the location you want and not use Winepath at all.
