External Program Task Doesn't Run


I'm using Qlikview Server (Test) and publisher V9.

I want to copy a qlikview file from 1 folder to another,

(from dev environment to the prod environment )

I use the copy command from the command line,

if itry to run it as a bat file (or command line) there is no problem

copy "C:\QlikView\Films.qvw" "D:\LastModel\Films.qvw"

but if i try to run it as an external program from the suppurted task (command line )

it failed whith error that it couldn' find the file

may somone help?

I get the same error. What version of Windows are you using? Since I have Windows 7 this might be due to having the UAC (User Access Control) active.

Hi Shauli

I tend to do those commands from inside my QlikView models

Execute cmd.exe /C move /Y $(DataPathHeaderIncremental)*Header.qvd $(DataPathHeaderIncrementalArchive);

if you do use this method remember to set the qvw to be allowed to execute external programs.
