Having a project folder path containing some special characters, such as "(" and ")" (probably others too), causes include paths to be rewritten (if originally from a Visual Studio project) with a big depth till the folder that contain the special characters. Example:
- <Compile Include="Properties\AssemblyInfo.cs" />

When opening the project on another computer the paths do not match anymore
and files cannot be found.
