I dont have a good feeling about this

Struggled for hours for this meaningless crap now.

I send command line to simple cd into directory and execute binary defined in one of the path. From the build-agent itself i can easily do but when same commands are issued from build job, it says can not find the binary!. Path can not be wrong because I can do it from the build-agent locally.

Now from the build sub project's parameter page I noticed following:

C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files\SlikSvn\bin;"C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuWin32\bin";C:\winvi;C:\WinDDK\7600.16385.1\bin\x86;C:\WinDDK\7600.16385.1\bin\x86\x86;

When I check the path env variable of the actual machine:

C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPower
Shell\v1.0\;"C:\Program Files\SlikSvn\bin","C:\Program Files (x86)\GnuWin32\bin";C:\WinDDK\7600.16385.1\bin\x86;C:\WinDDK\7600.16385.1\bin\x86\x86

See the double parenthesis missing from the build-job parameter page around slikSvn? It appears to be causing to miss out on the binary. Someone appears did a poor job. I dont see how and why it happened though but definitely a poor job.
