Search for string with quotes in file

I am looking for a way to create a conditional build step based upon a string search in a file. I have found the script expression [InStr(vbld_FSO().OpenTextFile("%FILE%").ReadAll(), "Some String") > 0 ] in the forum to use when "Build only if macro or expression" evaluates to true. However, the string I need to search for contains quotes. Can you help? I can't fiqure out how to escape the quotes in the script expression.

In VBScript, use two double quotes to insert a literal double quote character into a string:

"string containing a "" double quote"

"""string starting and ending with a double quote"""
