[GRADLE-3282] Java.net.URISyntaxException thrown on Linux with VisualCpp installDir configured Created: 16/Apr/15  Updated: 02/Feb/17  Resolved: 02/Feb/17

I noticed that if you specify the installDir path with spaces for the VisualCpp tool chain, a java.net.URISyntaxException is thrown when running that script on Linux.

Steps to Reproduce
1. Take the `samples/native-binaries/tool-chains/build.gradle` sample file, and uncomment the `// installDir "C:/Apps/Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0"` line.
2. Run that gradle script on a Linux machine
3. You will receive the error message `java.net.URISyntaxException: Illegal character in path at index 17: C:/Apps/Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0`

I noticed this running Gradle 2.3 on a CentOS 6.5 32-bit machine.

As announced on the Gradle blog we are planning to completely migrate issues from JIRA to GitHub.

We intend to prioritize issues that are actionable and impactful while working more closely with the community. Many of our JIRA issues are inactionable or irrelevant. We would like to request your help to ensure we can appropriately prioritize JIRA issues you’ve contributed to.

Please confirm that you still advocate for your JIRA issue before December 10th, 2016 by:

This is still current for me using the same repro.

Tested today on Debian Jessie / Stable 8.6 x64, Gradle 3.1

I'm assuming that since it's dev-reported that one of you will carry it over to GitHub
