Exported makefile on x64 Windows?

Hi
I'm using VisualDSP++ 5.0 Update 9.1. on a windows 7 x64.
There is a minor problem with makefiles exported from VisualDSP:
VisualDSP sets "ADI_DSP" to the path to VisualDSP in the beginning of the makefile and then edits it to add '\' before ' ', setting "VDSP" to the result.
On my PC "ADI_DSP" is set to

ADI_DSP=C:\Program Files (x86)\Analog Devices\VisualDSP 5.0

 

which results in

VDSP=C:/Program\ Files\ (x86)/Analog\ Devices/VisualDSP\ 5.0

 

gmake-378.exe from the VisualDSP installation dir. gives a lot of errors when trying to make the project.

 

 

We solve that problem by creating a junction

 

C:\VDSPJunction --> C:\Program Files (x86)\Analog Devices\VisualDSP 5.0

 

and editing the exported makefile to change

 

ADI_DSP=C:\Program Files (x86)\Analog Devices\VisualDSP 5.0

 

to

 

ADI_DSP=C:\VDSPJunction

 

 

So far so good. My problem arises, if a new version of the makefile is exported. Then again "ADI_DSP" is set to

ADI_DSP=C:\Program Files (x86)\Analog Devices\VisualDSP 5.0

and we must again edit the makefile to change it to
ADI_DSP=C:\VDSPJunction
Question:
Is the any way, that we can configure VisualDSP to use "ADI_DSP=C:\VDSPJunction" instead of "ADI_DSP=C:\Program Files (x86)\Analog Devices\VisualDSP 5.0" ?
Thanks in advance
Best regards
Eigil
