From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0) BuildID: When building a debug build, I always got errors in building mozilla\xpcom\typelib\xpt\tests\PrimitiveTest.c saying nonsense like "Cannot open file 'Brien'" and fails with a no such file error It turns out that this problem can be avoided by set my USERNAME evironment variable from "Christopher Brien" to its DOS equivalent "christ~1" (I'm aware of the pseudo-religous connotations. It's not my fault. Blame Micros~1). The makefile.win for PrimitiveTest.c includes a line saying LCFLAGS=-DWIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN -DEXPORT_XPT_API -DUSE_NSREG This "USE_NSREG" bit I expect means it looks for your mozilla config. This should either be changed or fixed to allow spaces in the USERNAME variable. This is not the same as failing because of spaces in MOZ_SRC (which is set to "Z:\bugzilla"). It shouldn't be using the USERNAME variable at all, rather APPDATA. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start cmd.exe 2.type "set USERNAME=something with spaces" 3.try to build a debug version of mozilla Actually, you may need to create a user account with spaces in the user name instead of step 2. Actual Results: The build breaks at PrimitiveTest.c Expected Results: The build shouldn't break Its probably possible to disable tests to work around this, but its still a bug, nonetheless.
