In your case this is a real problem because installers normally extract files from some form of compressed container, which may be embedded in the exe itself, then fire off one of the extracted files and exit.

The caret at the end of the line escapes the newlines, leading to the three lines being treated as if they were a single line. It can cause trouble when used in the middle of sequences in parentheses, like those used in loops.
