comment Possible Windows 8 cmd changes?
The same thing threw me a bit when I first looked at the snippet. It's actually running vsvars, and then running set right after with &, so the whole command that gets passed in is "[path to vsvars.bat] & set", then it parses what comes out of set.

The thing is, I was just running it on it's own as a test. The command line that's passed into cmd /c gets built up into a variable, and it does escape quotes there. Additionally, as stated, this same script worked fine under Win7.

USB 1.0 wasn't that used, however, USB 1.1 was widely used.
