Subject [jira] Created: (CONTINUUM-2276) command line for svn.exe should provide full path
Date Wed, 24 Jun 2009 14:16:55 GMT
command line for svn.exe should provide full path

                 Key: CONTINUUM-2276
             Project: Continuum
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: SCM
    Affects Versions: 1.2.3
         Environment: windows
            Reporter: Dominique Jean-Prost


I met a problem which could be easily prevented.
On windows, you can have a registry entry "Autorun" in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Command
Processor. In my case, I had the following as a value :
"cd /d c:\bin". It adds the following behaviour : each time you execute cmd.exe, it calls
the cd /d c:\bin.

As continuum uses on windows cmd.exe /X "svn blabla", in my case the checkout wasn't made
in the correct directory, preventing me to have my build.
If the full paths was given to svn.exe, even in such a weird environment like mine, I wouldn't
have met the problem.
