Windows CE sucks pretty hard.
The obvious workaround, avoid spaces in the subdirectory names, doesn't work, because goddamn Visual Studio 2005, the CE 5 application dev tool, likes to create object subdirectories with spaces in their names, and I can't figure out how to turn it off.
I keep sending bug reports to email@example.com, but they disappear into a black hole. Perhaps it's related to the black hole of sucking I see every day when I work with these tools?
One of these days, I'm going to figure out how people build actual products based around this crap. It's a total mystery to me how the firmware for, say, my phone is produced. I suspect it involves a pile of Microsoft consultants who have the source code to the build tools, or something. Out of curiosity, I asked a PSR from Intel's XScale department to call me back so I could figure out how they create board support packages for their XScale dev boards.
