Hi, thanks for your reply. The sdist is around 80Mb, and the download counter was going so fas that it was impossible that so many copies were actually being downloaded (every time I hit refresh in my browser it had increased by 5 or 10. My connection is fast but not THAT fast. I think the problem lies with msysGit as it only happened with the Windows slave. Also, I often get EOF errors when pulling the repo (maybe because the repo was created under Linux?) I switched to Gitbucket and pull from there, and I push to Bitbucket once it works. One StackOverflow post suggested that downgrading msysGit might work.

I found out that I could also enter environment variables, which solves it. And windows also accepts forward slashes (except UNC paths). Pytthon code is not an option here.

or this:

fileToOpen = os.path.join(folder1, folder2, "file.txt")
