Stefan,Thanks for the response.Please find below a longer version of my dialogue with Ant:
C:\>ant -buildfile=c:/tolvendev/tolven/build.xml createPropertiesFiles Buildfile: c:\tolvendev\tolven\build.xml createPropertiesFiles: BUILD

tolven.home is C:\TolvenDev\TolvenTolvenClient is at C:\TolvenDev\Tolven\TolvenClient. Are
you suggesting I should replace the basedir attribute in the property file to literal path?
I could try that and see but would prefer a better way as I would be changing similar path
for many projects in the property file against advice by Tolven not to edit that file.Thanks,IMJ
