If setup.exe stores those paths, then its a bug there.
You could have tested that easily, on a cmd window:
Volume in drive \\?\C: is OS
Volume Serial Number is 922E-C431
Directory of \\?\C:
12/09/2019 02:52 PM <DIR> Apps
01/04/2020 03:11 PM <DIR> Boot
04/05/2020 12:12 PM <DIR> cygwin64
12/24/2019 08:09 PM <DIR> Users
04/14/2020 05:45 PM <DIR> Windows
0 File(s) 0 bytes
14 Dir(s) 0 bytes free
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
