VMs with a PIPE in the name cannot be moved in groups

Reported by: KevinW Owned by:
Component: VM control Version: VirtualBox 6.0.0
Keywords: pipe error rename group Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Windows

Description

If a machine has a PIPE (|) in its name it cannot be moved in or out a group because the config file of the machine (vbox) cannot be edited.

If I rename the VM and replace the pipe with another character (i.e. a minus or a space) it works perfectly.

Right... That shouldn't happen in the first place! You shouldn't be allowed by the API to include any non-valid characters, like \, /, |, :, ?, *, &, %, $. Although I'm not so sure about the $ one...
