Software Deployment Question

K2000- Copying a file using a "Application" Post-install task and calling xcopy command

10/28/2020 153 views

I am a new user of K2000 and one of the things I want to do during a system image deployment is copy a few .exe files locally to a folder, C:\kacetmp, using an "Application" Post-install task. I have attached the file to the "Application" task, E5410A16.exe and entered the following into the "Full command line" box: cmd.exe /c "xcopy E5410A16.exe C:\kacetmp /Y". During deployment, I get an error that reads something along the lines of "Unable to find the specified file". Is there a method to do this correctly?

I tend to place the files and a batch file with the copy command in a zip file and then specify the batch file as the Full Command Line. I also take the extra steps of making sure the target directory exists first, etc.

the error is that it tries to run the (not uploaded) cmd.exe.

So you should use (if you have) the SMA to deploy the script which makes it easier or run a bat script.
