Problem making a test Solana Smart Contract

Hello,

I tried to build and deploy a test Solana Smart Contract following the procedure described here:

At this stage:

npm run build:program-rust

– I got a log message with an error:

helloworld@0.0.1 build:program-rust
cargo build-bpf --manifest-path=./src/program-rust/Cargo.toml --bpf-out-dir=dist/program

error: multiple input filenames provided (first two filenames are - and Guryev\.local\share\solana\install\releases\1.9.9\solana-release\bin\sdk\bpf\dependencies\bpf-tools\llvm\bin\ld.lld)

  • The problem was caused, as far as I understood, by whitespace character in the user’s home directory name. (The single path was considered two paths and that resulted in the error).

So my question is: Can I fix that without renaming the user’s home directory? Is there any script that I could edit?

Thanks in advance,
Alexey Guryev
