I’m having big troubles trying to build bjam in Windows XP sp3 because of the path and file names with white spaces.

I had to change the build.bat and the path of m TMP environment variable to get rid the problem.


But I believe that’s not the intention with the build.

I use Borland (2007) from CodeGear. The executable is localized under the c:\program files\code gear

The TMP env var is usually C:\Documents and Setings\myaccount\Local Settings\Temp


As you see those are paths that the Build.jam uses automatically and therefore are difficult to change with the “ ” or ‘ ‘


Somebody who knows the right way to solve this problem
