Running bzr on Windows CMD as Administrator causes "Internal error"

Asked by Vy Nguyen on 2012-06-27

I was running my CMD window as Administrator, and tried to branch from a project on launchpad with bazaar, but got this error:

(Just a few lines from the error, I couldn't exactly copy-and-paste from the window terminal, so I had to type this down!)

And I was running Putty SSH Authentication Agent, so the error is kind of misleading, I think.

===========
ERROR: parmiko.SSHException: lost ssh-agent

Traceback (most recen call last):
 File "bzrlib\commands.ypo", line 929, in exception_to_return_code
 FIle "bzrlib]commands.pyo", line 1131, in run_bzr
 ....

bzr 2.5.1 on python 2.6.6 (Windows7-6.1.7601-SP1)
arguments: ['bzr', 'branch', '<branch name>']
puglints: bzrtools[2.5.0], changelog_merge[2.5.1], colo[0.4.0]
 ...
encode: ...

*** Bazaar has encountered an internal error. This probably indicates a bug in Bazaar.
 ...

=====
Running BAZAAR as a normal user is fine, but I wouldn't able to fork a branch, because of the read-write permission.

So how do I fix this?

Thanks

This error comes directly from paramiko (which we use for SSH
communication). I'm not sure why it has trouble talking to the ssh
agent.

We've apparently seen this before. I'll link the related bug.

A patch for the Pageant side of this issue landed as part of bug 820805 so, checking your putty version and updating to 0.6.2 may help.

Can you help with this problem?
