How do I force Bamboo to include double quotes in a command?

We are using Visual Studio to build one of our projects, and the way you specify the project to be built is by using the syntax Config|Platform. When the Config name has an embedded space Bamboo properly embeds the whole string in double quotes. When the Config name does not have an embedded space, it does not include the double quotes. This breaks the build, as the OS interprets the pipe symbol.

The answer is to precede the pipe symbol with the command shell escape character: ^
