I've got an issue when compiling Mozilla (64-Bit) where it cannot find a specific header file even though it is present and all the other header files are being found in that directory:
c:/Users/Alex/Downloads/mozilla-beta/media/webrtc/trunk/webrtc/system_wrappers/source/critical_section_win.h(15): catastrophic error: cannot open source file "webrtc/system_wrappers/interface/critical_section_wrapper.h"
I've attached the complete log file, and the relevant files. I've made sure that UAC is disabled, that the file has all access permissions and that the linker has been pointed to the directory, but I still get the error and I'm confused as to why.
I'm not sure if the issue is with ICC but I can't find another reason why this would occur.

Linkers don't use and don't process header files and I'm confident that you're dealing with a path issue. If Intel C++ compiler would have a problem with finding header files it would be a really serious problem. It would instantly create compilation problems for thousands developers.
Sorry I meant the compiler (was looking for any linker errors at the time which is why).
And I'm sure it's an error to do with me, but was wondering why this is the only header file being affected.
From within the directory where compilation occurs, obj-i686-pc-mingw32/media/webrtc/trunk/webrtc/system_wrappers/source/system_wrappers_system_wrappers, fopen fails when trying to open the header file named ../../../../../../../../media/webrtc/trunk/webrtc/system_wrappers/source/../../../webrtc/system_wrappers/interface/critical_section_wrapper.h
The Windows utility icacls also complains about that file:
./webrtc/system_wrappers/interface/critical_section_wrapper.h: The system cannot
find the path specified.
Interestingly, other header files in that directory can be opened using the same Path. As a workaround, is there anyway you could hack the Mozilla build system so it didn't use such complicated names e.g. simplify the -I include path to eliminate strings like this: webrtc/system_wrappers/source/../../..
This is just a workaround suggestion, not a final solution
just a stab in the dark have you try disable that feature could it be simple as a direct path to file ??
#include "webrtc/system_wrappers/interface/critical_section_wrapper.h" change to #include "c:/Users/Alex/Downloads/mozilla-beta/media/webrtc/trunk/webrtc/system_wrappers/interface/critical_section_wrapper.h"
like said stab in the dark :)
