    That sounds like a problem with your IDE. What IDE are you using?

    Thread moved to IDE section.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    I would suggest you to copy and paste the few lines of your build-impl.xml being around the line 191, so maybe we can guess what the IDE is trying to do. From the error message you can see where this file is.

    And also check if you can find the file project.properties, and inside of it, if you can see the build.dir definition ?
