#8934: b2 : failed to write output file
 Reporter: jeffrey.beu.uz8yz6yl@… | Type: Bugs
   Status: new | Milestone: To Be Determined
Component: None | Version: Boost 1.54.0
 Severity: Problem | Keywords:

 Executing b2.exe within cmd.exe or powershell :


 Building boost_1_54_0 with :

 b2 --debug-building --prefix=%USERPROFILE%\pkg\indie\boost address-
 model=64 --exec-prefix=%USERPROFILE%\programs\boost
 --libdir=%USERPROFILE%\pkg\lib --includedir=%USERPROFILE%\pkg\include
 --build-type=complete --build-dir=..\tmp pch=off debug-symbols=on debug-
 store=database install 2>&1 >> ..\boostbuild.txt

 results in an error :

 failed to write output file

 My initial thoughts path name is it approaching the MAX_PATH, so I tried
 redirecting echo to the name file within cmd.exe; it resulted in The
 system cannot find the path specified.

 In powershell, echo redirection was successful but the build still failed
 at the same point.

 The full path length is 246 :
 python -c

 File system is NTFS located on a usb interconnected hard drive.

 Thanks for the great work.
