Illegal windows characters for file names, used in Player Settings for "Product Name" causes issues

Deployment Management


In "Player Settings" using "Product Name" with Windows not allowed characters in file name, like \ / : * ? " < > | can cause issues with functions, which requires to create a folder with its product name.

For example: using "Application.persistentDataPath" function returns empty string value if product name is "my:production", because folder can't be created using colon character.

Expected: filter out or replace illegal characters with dashes or underscores.

Reproducible on 5.2, 5.3, 5.4;

Repro steps:
1. create new project
2. in "Player Settings" change Product Name to "my:production"
3. create a script with this line: Debug.Log(">>> " + Application.persistentDataPath); and press play. It returns empty string.
