Hi All experts,

Ple help me with sample code.


First of all you need to use xcopy or robocopy with the parameters you want to, try in the command line of windows. Then you use the start process activity like in this example:


A simple example for that.
xcopy.xaml (5,6 KB)


Hi @moenk,

thanks for the example it’s really help can u please advise which screen i should indicate here image in the example image not available.

Look at the selector - it waits until xcopy is done.

Hi @moenk,

Nothing is copied from source and target folder :frowning:

Well here it did - I dont even know what you tried.

Just changed the path of source and target from u r example but it’s not copied any files or folders

I still dont know what you tried, what is your source, what your target? Dont forget trailing backslashes. Do you have xcopy on your system?

xcopy (3).xaml (6.2 KB)

attached Xaml and i’ve xcopy.exe on my pc

it’s working now thank you so much
