The `jboss-cli` tool would not launch successfully on Microsoft Windows if JBoss EAP 6 was installed in a directory that had spaces or other special characters such as parentheses in its path. For example, the following error message was displayed if JBoss EAP 6 was installed in the directory `C:\JBoss EAP\jboss-eap-6.2`:
Error: Could not find or load main class EAP\jboss-eap-6.2\bin\jboss-cli-logging.properties
This issue has been fixed in this release by changing how the `jboss-cli` tool declares and uses file paths on Microsoft Windows. As a result, it can be used without workarounds in JBoss EAP 6 installations in directories that have spaces or other special characters in their path on Microsoft Windows systems.
