When using Open With -> Choose Application, the path that is passed to the selected application is not wrapped in double-quotes. This causes the operation to fail for some applications. This is usually only a problem when attempting to open shelved files because they have an @ or # symbol in the path, which breaks sometimes.

The specific case I'm running into is trying to run a .bat file on some files, but it always cuts off the path after the @ or # symbol so it fails to open.

I couldn't find a bug tracker anywhere so I hope this is a good place to report stuff like this. Would be really nice to get this fixed since it's breaking my tool chain :(

I'm on P4V Rev. Perforce Visual Client/NTX64/2015.2/1312139
