Windows 8 and directory names - strange behavior

Recommended Posts

I backed up the install directory ("mvp 2005 - base") from a Windows 7 laptop where the game worked fine.

I then copied that directory to a Windows 8 laptop, and installed the 1995 total conversion mod.  The game worked fine after the mod install.

I then changed the name of the install directory on the Windows 8 laptop (from "mvp 2005 - base" to "mvp 2005 -1995"), and the game would not launch.  I made NO other changes.

Interestingly, I repeated the process, but this time instead of changing the name of the directory, I copied it (so it is now "mvp 2005 - base - copy"), and it WORKS.

Does anyone know why this happens?
