Hi Merten,

I'm not claiming to know anything about this, just giving you something 
else to try.  Try the command without the quotes.  I say this because of 
experiences I've had with MSDOS eating quotes that should have remained.  
Therefore, I believe that wrc is actually seeing the definition without 
the quotes.  Just guessing but it's worth a try.
