Hmm, so I replaced `%HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\user-config.jam` with just `config.jam`, and got the exact same error "the system cannot find the file specified". Not very helpfull... :-(


Is it correct to think that this has nothing to do with boost and is just a Windows/appveyor issue?

So it seems. So far I haven't even be able to reproduce the error in my local Windows VM. And not being a regular Windows user (and much less developer), I feel like I'm totally in the dark.

If so, Stefan, can you create a script that only does the part causing the error. I like to take this to stackoverflow

I have reduced the .appveyor.yml script to this: https://github.com/boostorg/gil/blob/bug/.appveyor.yml, which still yields the error:
