    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-5589?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13918205#comment-13918205

Darryl L. Pierce commented on QPID-5589:

What is the source for the path for Python's install location get picked up? Is that being
determined or is it coming from an envvar? Could that be changed to us / instead of \?

>             Project: Qpid
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 0.26
>         Environment: Windows, cmake
>            Reporter: Chuck Rolke
> On a windows build system where python is installed at "C:\Program Files\Python26" (space
in path name) the INSTALL project fails every time.
> 1. Execute a cmake with "-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=install".
> The generated managementgen\cmake_install.cmake has
> {noformat}
>    "c:\Program Files\Python26\Lib\site-packages/qmfgen")
> {noformat}
> 2. Execute "make install" with (VS2008)
> {noformat}
> devenv qpid-cpp.sln /build "Debug|Win32" /project INSTALL
> {noformat}
> The complaint from install is

> Results in a Permission Denied as C:\Program Files is protected.
> 3. Cmake inclusion of directory managementgen and the installation into the system Python
packages directory is not optional. So install gets stuck.
> This jira proposes adding an option BUILD_QMFGEN that would allow a user to suppress
installing qmf-gen into the system. This lets a user avoid the spaces-in-the-path-name issue
and move on.
> On systems where Python is installed in a directory that "works" then the system site-packages
are overwritten with each developer install. Is that right? How can a developer test junk
code without trashing the system for other users? Having a switch to suppress qmfgen for dev
builds would dodge this issue, too.
