sorry for replying here, for that i can't find the original message.

my friend, cloudwu, also encounter this problem . we use 'bjam -d+2 -
d+4' to try to find out what's wrong . step by step , finally , we
found that there are some error in PATH. here are the output :

C:\project\ws\source>echo %path%
%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;

the variable %SystemRoot% should be replaced by the value of it .
but in fact , it is not replaced. maybe there are some programs
changed it . if we let PATH include 'c:\windows\system32' in xp, the
problem is gone. we solved it .
