Subject [jira] [Commented] (QPID-5589) C++ Windows install fails for qmfgen when Python is in "C:\Program Files"
Date Mon, 03 Mar 2014 16:57:22 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/QPID-5589?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13918260#comment-13918260

Darryl L. Pierce commented on QPID-5589:

And it's the inbetween time where the \ is being treated as an escape character as well, since
the error about "Invalid escape sequence \P".

Can you try changing "print get_python_lib()' to "print get_python_lib().replace('\\', '/')"?
That should have the string coming out of Python be totally CMake compatible from the start.

>    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}
> 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.
