Thanks, but I tried that among a variety of other/similar things.  All have the same effect
when I try to invoke a windows command directly.  OTOH, I am able to get a .bat file to run
(exec path\to\some.bat).  That solved my problem even though I find it a bit distasteful.
It’s not that important though so I’ll look at it again when I get a chance.

Thx again.

Hi,

You have to escape the backslashes with another backslash in the paths if you haven't already,
so something like

shell:exec copy C:\\path\\to\\file.bar foo.bar

Should do the trick. If not absolute, the paths will be relative to your Karaf installation
directory.

cheers,

John.

“System Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified (or something to that effect)”
even though the paths are absolute.

Anybody have an example of usage?
