Summary0029899: Debugger: Using commas in the project path causes the debugger to not connect
DescriptionIf you create a project in a path such as the following:

C:\Users\samuel.balbirnie-cumming\Documents\GameMakerStudio2\Strange Path 0,34\strange game 0,45

the debugger will fail to connect to the Runner (and the Runner window will not appear).

Exporting the project to a more sanitary path will allow the debugger to connect as expected.

When running normally (non-Debug run) with a path with commas, the Runner appears and acts as expected.

Expected: Paths with commas do not interfere with debugger connection.
Steps To Reproduce1. Create a project with a path including commas.
2. Run in Debug mode.
3. Observe that the debugger never connects, and the Runner window does not appear.
Additional InformationIn my opinion, we shouldn't be supporting paths with commas, as this isn't good practice. We also use commas as a delimiter for our commands when launching the Debugger, so I suspect that the path is interfering with running commands. However, as the Runner launches find when run normally, we should probably do the same with the Debugger.
