software deployment package to remote computers cannot identify the %userprofile% folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    I am create a package in our software deployment tool.  Basically, the package runs an executable to install an application.  I include a custom script to copy files from a centralize location to a folder under the %userprofile% of the target computer.  However, the copy doesnt happen.  I think this is because the deployment package cannot identify the %userprofile% folder on the remote computer. 

    I am just using XCOPY in that script. 

    Anyone has any suggestion?

    Many thanks.

  • That environment is only available to a logged in user and not remotely available to anyone else.
