How to copy a file in k1000

02/16/2017 1957 views
we have created a script to copy a file .exe from a server over to a c: root directory device. It will make a directory using MD C:\name but it will not copy over the specified file example 
copy" \\server\folder\file name.exe" c:\folder name
any ideas. we have a similair set up for another software process and it works fine?

Make sure you have the destination path in quotes like:

copy "\\server\folder\file name.exe" "c:\folder name"

If the script is running in the default system context then it will not have access to network shares unless that share has been given access to the computer account (which is not typical). Unless the file being copied is dynamic I would recommend uploading it as a script dependency and copying it from the dependency folder.

If all you need is to copy a file, I would suggest using "File Sync" (Distribution > File Synchronization) rather than scripting.
