Yes. There is no accent just a space as in "Documents and settings" or 
"My Documents" or "Mes documents". To check if there was really a 
'space' problem, I have renamed "On Work" to "On_work" (with no space), 
and rcmd check does not work better.

Rcmd check works fine only when the pgirmess folder is moved one 
directory up (so still on a path that still have 'space' in directory 
names, e.g. "Documents and Settings" and "Mes documents".

Quite strange.
