The Windows backslashes are a vestige that is on it's way out.
Just use forward slashes everywhere in Lua! Everything apart from the Command Prompt (cmd.exe) understand proper file names these days.

dofile "C:/a/ScriptingLanguageSupport/Lua2.lua"


PS The only place I ever have to use backslashes for pathnames in Windows is when constructing a command line for os.execute(). But there you also have the lovely task of getting your quoting right and everything is suddenly difficult.
