ghostscript accept arguments like:

gswin32.exe -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -dAutoRotatePages=/None

the /prepress and /None will be treated as a path and be transformed in DOS path

Please implement some mechanism to disable path transformation temporary.

PS: Now i'm using my wrapper to transform the "path" back into /prepress and something like that, it's ugly.

    Does the use of two slashes suffice?

    gswin32.exe -d=PDFSETTINGS=//prepress -dAutoRotatePages=//None

    MSYS when seeing // will remove one and not convert to a Windows path but it this was created for Windows style "switch" attributes as in dir //X but it may work for this instance as well.
