    Unfortunately I don’t get any error in the WDM logs. I just go to the target TC and notice that the file hasn’t been replaced. Is there an alternate place I can go to see for logs?

    If you know you’re going to overwrite it, can you just delete it before copy the new one over?

    Since it’s an XPe machine, it’s probably got the write filter running. Is it properly disabling itself before the script is executed?

    Good point and in doing so when I did delete the file before copying it, it did work, thanks a million

    Just one question though, does this mean that we cannot overwrite files with WDM rsp files?

    Normally this should work fine but maybe there was some lock on this file that prevents from being overwritten. Strange.
