The problem does not happen with sub-folders starting with ~.

The build dies like this:

Adding C:/Users/xxxx/code/scripts/installer_extract_packages/packages/controlSUITE_base
Creating subdirectories structure for C:/Users/xxxx/code/scripts/installer_extract_packages/packages/controlSUITE_base
Creating directory ~cs_desktop
Unknown error while building
Build time: 2 seconds
Build failed!

I am running v8.0.2 under Windows 7.

The component that generates the problem has:

<folder>
  <description>Program Files</description>
  <destination>${installdir}</destination>
  <name>programfiles</name>
  <platforms>all</platforms>
  <distributionFileList>
      <distributionDirectory>
          <origin>packages/controlSUITE_base</origin>
      </distributionDirectory>
  </distributionFileList>

The directory in question is: packages/controlSUITE_base/~cs_desktop

Thanks for reporting it. We have reproduced the issue and are investigating possible solutions. Is the file a required file or was it created by mistake in the directory?
