I'm using build.bat under my \$Boos_Root\tools\jam\src - also Build alone.

The PATH env var contains the path to codegear/Borland bcc32 exec file, so that's the way they detect it. As well as my Temp under Documents and Settings is contained in TMP env var.

And what command are you running to get this? I don't see how either build.bar or build.jam
can *ever* detect codegear at that location.
