Xcopyfile does not copy empty folder
I have Installshield 2014. and Xcopyfile does not copy empty sub folder, but I have to copy whole folder.
XCopyFile (resdir + "\\*.*", CurrentDate , COMP_NORMAL|INCLUDE_SUBDIR);
Does anyone help me?
Please check the sample code shared in below help link, and try it works or not.
You can also test it by creating a test project and then try to add installscript Custom Action to copy the folder. So that it will be easy to investigate.
Hi, Thanks for answering but It doesn't work.
: I want to copy entire folder in source but the function only copy files.
: It copies folder which has size. It also copies empty file but doesn't copy empty folder(0 Byte).
When I used /E option, I can copy all folder and files including empty folder at Command prompt in windows(cmd.exe)
For example) xcopy SOURCE_DIR TARGET_DIR /e
Is there any way I can copy including empty folder like /e option in installshield script?
