------- Additional Comments From antoine@apache.org  2006-04-13 19:22 -------
I wonder whether ant.bat should not use the value of USERPROFILE rather than the
value of HOME anyway.

According to some articles in the Internet, HOMEPATH should be the full path of
a users home drive under Windows NT. However, you need to combine it with
HOMEDRIVE to get something useful (on my system, HOMEPATH=\, HOMEDRIVE=H: )

USERPROFILE=C:\Documents and Settings\[my user]

The directory on C: gets copied to the network drive H: I believe when I log out ?

I have seen USERPROFILE also on Windows 2000. Therefore USERPROFILE makes in the
Windows variant which I know (sorry, I do not know Win 9x) the most sense.

Regards,
Antoine
