This issue has been solved. See solution.


I am trying to showcase the capabilities of Altiris at work, since it is budgeting times they are thinking of of other options.  Basically I have this big task job pretty figured out, but I am stumbling on this one, I need to copy a file from a UNC task and place it on a local destination.  Keep in mind that I need to place it on the Programdata folder in Windows 7.  The copy file task is failing on me. please help.

You could import your file as Software Release and distribute it via Package Delivery task (without specifing the command line). In Package Delivery task in advanced options you should specify custom download location.

NB: Software Management Solution plug-in should be installd on client computer.

Yes, you should use %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\foldername as Location on destination computer in the advanced settings for Package Delivery task.

After that your package will be delivered to "C:\Documents and Settings\All users\foldername" for windows XP and to the "C:\ProgramData\foldername" for Windows 7.
