The Bjam version is 1.36.0
The problem is that when a path or file name as C:\program files\codegear\rad studio\.....
Or c:\documents and settings\account\local settings\temp are used as arg parameters in Windows xp command mngr the white spaces means a new parameter. So in this case instead of the whole path the exec prog takes C:\program as 1st param files\codegear\rad as the second param an so on.

In my case I get Error E2194: Could not find file 'files\codegear\rad.cpp'

/E

You did not say what the problem is. Please specify exactly what error message, or what
misbehaviour you see, and what version of bjam you are using.
