[Buildbot-devel] Help on Windows2008, 64-bit

Hi all,

I'm trying to set up a buildbot slave for building memcached and other 
projects on Windows. I've installed twisted 9.0.0, Python 2.4, 
pywin32-203.win32-py2.4.exe, and buildbot 0.7.11p3 and using msysgit as 
my working environment and where I start buildbot from. I have all this 
working on a windows 2003 32-bit install perfectly, but for some reason 
on this host I can't get buildbot to successfully run a command. The 
error I get is this, as shown from the master:


This is simply trying to run "touch foo", but is the same exact error no 
matter what I run, particularly the steps where I check out a git 

The error in the twisted log on the slave is this:


I'm not sure what else to do. I've checked that these commands run fine 
by hand, which they do.

How do I see exactly what is going on with buildbot? How do I see maybe 
what error is causing the failure on the slave?

Thank you in advance for any help or tips you can provide!
