Successfully updated from v2.5.0 to v2.5.1

C:\Users\Len\AppData\Roaming\Kodi>C:\Program: can't open file 'Files\Python37\python.exe': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

Basically my python is on "C:\program files\Python37" instead of the usual c:\python37.


Could either use popen or quote the second parameter on line 3326.  Not sure if that second solution is portable between OS's.

The problem, on Windows, is this line:
os.execl(sys.executable, sys.executable, *args)

sys.executable is the full path to the Python binary, this works fine on Linux if the path contains a space (ie. /storage/abc def/python, tested with both Python2.7 and Python3.6), but on Windows it's not working as mentioned here.

Not sure how best to solve this - I don't plan on rewriting the update procedure if I can help it and may just disable auto-update for Windows users: to update, Windows users would instead have to perform a manual update check with texturecache.py update, and with auto-update disabled any subsequent commands will not choke on a new version (not that there should be a new version as you've just updated etc.).

Currently the checkupdate property defaults to yes, but on Windows the quickest solution might be to default this to no.

As a quick fix for the current version (ie. implement the method I've just described, albeit not automatically) add checkupdate = no to your config and run texturecache.py update each time before all other commands to ensure you always have the latest version.

Although thinking about it some more, disabling auto-update on Windows punishes all Windows users with Python installed as C:\Python37\python.exe, which is sane and works, so the best solution may be for me to do nothing, and you should fix your system by installing Python to C:\Python37, or use the workaround above (disabling checkupdate. Yes, I like this option the best, but thanks for reporting an odd issue! Smile
