      Description

      We need a variable that points to the installed templates directory for Instaview in the kettle.properties file

      The location is relative to the Kettle INSTALL_DIR

      InstaviewTemplates=INSTALL_DIR/data-integration/plugins/spoon/agile-bi/platform/pentaho-solutions/system/instaview/templates

      verify that the path format is correct for the platform being installed on

          Tested on Win XP (pdi-4.4.0-GA-RC2-153-i386.exe), kettle.properties looks like this:
          MonetDBDefaultMClientPath=C:\\Pentaho\\monetdb
          mclient.bat
          InstaviewTemplates=C:\Pentaho\design-tools\data-integration\plugins\spoon\agile-bi\platform\pentaho-solutions\system\instaview\templates

          Issue: InstaviewTemplates needs forward slashes or double backslashes

          Update the installer to escape backslashes to InstaviewTemplates folder

          FYI: Followed up by PDI-8789 (Avoid modifying the kettle.properties file by the installer for Instaview)

          Validated in pdi-4.4.0-GA-RC3-154-i386.exe: both variable values look good.
