    URL-based software distribution with special characters returns 404 Not Found

    Apprentice

      We're on LANDesk 9.6 sp1.  I'm trying to create a package using an URL path and it is throwing the following error:

      404package.png

       

      The path is something like this: http://server/distribution/packages/MS VC++ 2008/vcredist_x86.exe

       

      It is tripping up on the two special characters '++', since it works fine if I remove them or rename them to "plusplus" (ugly workaround).

       

      I realize I can use the UNC path or rename the folder as I did above, but why is this an issue?
