Hi David,

You can always file bugs like this against the kicad-winbuilder
project on launchpad so that I can address the problems.

I am currently rolling a new release of kicad-winbuilder so that it is
a complete sandbox environment. This will include cmake and bazaar
installs, so there will be no dependacies (it is essentially a
portable binary release). This should fix all issues like this, and
problems with having msys installed (or WinAvr which has msys
components in it's install).

Thanks for replying to this Wayne.

Best Regards,
