    How to copy new word templates to users folder

    jpozucek Apprentice

      I need to copy new template files (*.dot) to the template directory where Word stores the templates, c:\users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\templates.


      I create a batch file that does an xcopy buy the xcopy hangs when I try to copy to the directory above.

      Here is my batch file:


      echo on
      cmd /c xcopy \\servername\sharename\Templates\word\*.dot c:\users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\templates /h /y
      exit /B /0


      I created a Batch file distribution task and set it to run using the current user account but the xcopy hangs.  I can see it just sitting in Task Manager.


      If I change the destination to just c:\temp the batch works.


      I am using a Standard Push delivery with Use Download from Source selected.  I see all the files get pushed to sdmcache.


      I am pushing to Windows 7 devices and I'm running Landesk 9.0 SP2.


      Any suggestions?
