is it normal that, if in an product name of an setup project a colon is, 
a error from light.exe will throws?

I have a Bundle in which a x86 and a x64 msi is.

If there is a colon in my product name of a setup project and I call the 

"C:\Program Files (x86)\WiX Toolset v3.11\bin\Light.exe" -out 
"C:\Dev\KKK\kkk SetupBundle\bin\Release\mmm_Setup.exe" -pdbout 
"C:\Dev\KKK\kkk SetupBundle\bin\Release\mmm_Setup.wixpdb" -ext 
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WiX Toolset v3.11\bin\\WixUtilExtension.dll" 
-ext "C:\Program Files (x86)\WiX Toolset v3.11\bin\\WixBalExtension.dll" 
-contentsfile "obj\Release\kkk 
SetupBundle.wixproj.BindContentsFileList.txt" -outputsfile 
"obj\Release\kkk SetupBundle.wixproj.BindOutputsFileList.txt" 
-builtoutputsfile "obj\Release\kkk 
SetupBundle.wixproj.BindBuiltOutputsFileList.txt" -wixprojectfile 
"C:\Dev\KKK\kkk SetupBundle\kkk SetupBundle.wixproj" 

the following error comes back:

light.exe : error LGHT0001 : Die Länge darf nicht kleiner als 0 (null) sein.
Parametername: length

Exception Type: System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException

Does anyone know this behavior and can help?
