Space in path of project ( Visual Source Safe)


I have a project who's VSS path has space in it's path. I get the following error:

jetbrains.buildServer.vcs.VcsException: Getting sources for checkout rule '.=>.' failed with erorr: ss.exe has failed to start:

C:\Program Files\TeamCity\temp\TC-VSS-38-ss_native>SET SSDIR=D:\SourceSafe

C:\Program Files\TeamCity\temp\TC-VSS-38-ss_native>"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual SourceSafe\ss.exe" Get $/My Project/Code -R

Is there a way to get passed this? The fix would be to quote the project name but I'm not allowed to put "" in the interface because it looks to have $/ as the first characters.
