I assume you have gone through it character by character. The only time I've had this happen is when an illegal character was actually there, but I didn't hear it until I went through each character.
Otherwise, you may have one of those strange permissions issues that Microsoft seems to be plagued with.

For some reason it keeps saying make sure there are no characters such
as \ / etc.  That sounds strange

Subject: can't get a program to install

Hey guys,

OK, i can't get a program to install.  I'm using win 10, and jfw 2018.
So i'm going through the installation screen, and when it comes to the
folder where i wanna put the program, i'm excepting the default, this is the
error i get.

couldn't create directory dialog
could not create the target directory, access is denied be sure it doesn't
contain an invalid character

Never seen this before.  Any ideas?
