Unable to Rename a Windows file with Send Event
I am trying to rename a file using the Send Event script command with no success. I first tried using variables in the calculation.
Set Variable [$old; Value:"d:\Import.log"]
Set Variable [$new; value:"Export.log"]
For the Send Event Calculation I entered:
"cmd /c rename " & quote($old) & " " & quote($new)
When that didn't work I stripped it down to a basic command with no variables for testing. In the Send Event calculation box I entered:
"cmd /c rename d:\Import.log Export.log"
I could not get that to work either.
If I open a Windows command prompt and enter "rename d:\Import.log Export.log" (without the quotes) it works fine. I've use the Send Event command to create folders successfully, but have had no luck with renaming files. Ultimately I would like to rename folders. Am I missing something obvious?
