Did you try file:///c:/qdsdev <file:///c:/qdsdev> ?

Subject: Setting basedir seems broken now

I just grabbed the latest (9/7/00) nightly build and I'm having a problem
with setting the basedir.  I have the following line in my build.xml:

  <project name="qds" default="apps" basedir="c:\qdsdev"> 

which was working with earlier releases.  However, now I'm getting the
following error message: 

  build.xml:7: Can't set basedir null due to The filename, directory name,
or volume label syntax is incorrect 

I've tried numerous forms for the basedir however I get this error any time
I have a colon in the name.  And when I don't have a colon the path is
always interpreted as relative which is not the desired functionality.

Any suggestions?

P.S. Running under Windows 2000.

Invoke Ant with the -verbose switch. You will get much more 
information than you ever wanted to see - including which files 
<javac> compiles.
