+Aaron because i think he uses scan-build on Windows more or less 
successfully. I won't have time for setting up a Windows machine for 
myself in the nearest future.

Could you tell us exactly what you're doing and what exactly does it 
print to console, more in the spirit of 
http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html ?

Hmm, i don't see such string in the source code of scan-build, neither 
it looks like a standard Perl message.

am not able to generate reports ( HTML files )

Could you provide the exact command and its exact output? Normally you 
don't care where is everything installed because you simply provide the 
path to the analyzer with `--use-analyzer`.
