    External commands using 'XCOPY' :-(

      Share This:

      Hello All,


      I've written a very simple external command to copy the contents of a folder to another folder using the XCOPY.


      Unfortunatley although the job reports all is ok but it doesn't actually copy anything :(


      I've resorted to the normal copy command which works fine.


      Has anyone else come across this issue or is there a know reason why this doesn't work?


      *Example of failing syntax:

      xcopy %systemroot%\regedit.exe c:\cmdutils


      whereas this works:

      copy %systemroot%\regedit.exe c:\cmdutils*


      Feedback appreciated


      Testing on Windows 2003
