Using Saved Projects with special characters in directory na

I have a project which I have saved which compares 2 x directories which I access weekly.

My directories are both in a windows sub-directory which has an ampersand in its name: (&)

When WinMerge opens the project, it prompts first with the "Ok" button greyed out and unclickable.

The directory name has been converted to (&) by WinMerge which then creates a non-existent directory structure.

I have to delete the amp; from both Left & Right folder string to make the directory structure valid and the "Ok" button clickable at which point I can run the compare.

Is there any way, without renaming the directory, to stop WinMerge changing the directory name? Is there an escape key or something I can use so that the directory name is maintained
