Hmm. My results with this in Windows XP are interesting and weird: It *does*
eliminate the 'unending string quote' appearance in the INI file; but it
produces a fatal error, "File Init Error: Cannot open output file."

(I double-checked to see if I had made any errors with my syntax.)

Perhaps it works with *later* Windows editions(?)
