Running robocopy as pre-build event?

Postby oceanclub on Tue Sep 28, 2021 10:18 am

I tried a robocopy command following as a pre-build event but it doesn't appear to work:

robocopy ..\wiki Content\wiki /MIR

I then tried putting it into a prebuild.bat file at the same level as my project file and calling _that_ as a pre-build event command but that didn't work either.

Does anyone know how this might be accomplished within the target?

EDIT: For the Pre-Built Event Command field I've tried:



start "$(ProjectDirectory)\prebuild.bat"

The later caused a command window to pop up with nothing happening. I'm not sure I'm going wrong as based on the official help and also this page, a simple reference to a BAT file should work: ... Events.htm ... -williams/

EDIT 2: According to Madcap this is a bug.....
