script property replacement on windows fails, LISA_HOME

i need to get to a file, located in hitDeploy from my service, in  a scripted dataset.


so, I use property substitution to do this,


def filepath="{{LISA_HOME}}/hotDeploy/dir/filename"


but, on windows LISA_HOME is 'C:\progra~1\CA\DevTest\'


and the script can't compile, because the backslashes are not double escaped.


I added replace to fix the string, but its the compile phase that fails..


I don't see another property with hotDeploy or LISA_HOME with linux file path separators in it..


how do I solve this problem?

(there are also many properties that have LISA_HOME as their prefix which will fail the same way.
