if you use the whole program transformation mode the target directory 
should not be a subdirectory of the source directory. The next time you 
call ac++ you would weave in woven code, which is not what you wanted. 
The second problem is that your -I option was not correct. So better use:

ac++ -p usermanager -d usermanager-out -I Usermanager -ecpp -v9

As decribed below ac++ has a problem with your header file extension 
.hpp. As a workaround you could write a header file with the extension 
.h that includes all .hpp header files.

Please, don't send your mails to all of these addresses. One is enough.
