Absolute path information is required error while creating a Web Application in SharePoint CA

While creating a web application recently, one of our developer made a typo in the address path for the web.config (Who does not have fat fingers). Instead of N:\…. he typed N:?. This resulted in the following error

“Absolute path information is required”

So we went back and tried with correct path but it resulted in the same error. I was concerned that this would have affected the SharePoint Admin Database. So the only solution was to restore the Admin DB to earlier version or Reinstall the SharePoint Farm. After little more browsing the web, I came across the nice post from Jai. He hadĀ  the same issue and he came out with a cool utility which fixed my issue in a Jiffy. Check his post out
