Hello, I'm trying to build ROS2 Eloquent for Windows using the guide:

The problem occurs when I build the "resource_retriever" package, when the whole build fails. In order to debug slightly I ran

colcon build --merge-install --packages-select resource_retriever --event-handler console_cohesion+

Resulting in

Starting >>> resource_retriever
--- output: resource_retriever

No other errors come up until this point, and I have no idea how to solve it

This bug was fixed in . It has not yet been backported to ROS Eloquent, but I would expect it to be in the next ROS Eloquent sync.

Edit: It has been backported to Eloquent, and is fixed as of version 2.2.2

Making the changes made as in does the trick. Thank you.
