Hi Scott,

About the backslashes, I have to admit I'm not sure whether or not 
miniAudicle/ChucK would deal with them.

You could give it a quick try and in case that doesn't work, I would 
make sure you can run any other script on the Windows machine. Maybe try 
some examples. Just to make sure the issue is not with the machine 
itself, OS, configurations, etc.
