why won't my command line pipe work

Recommended Posts

This is an xcopy script.

$thedir = "c:\testdir"

runwait("C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\XCOPY.EXE " & chr(34) & @MyDocumentsDir & CHR(34) & ' ' & chr(34) & $thedir & CHR(34) & ' /c/s/a/exclude:\exclude.txt >c:\backup.txt')

It will not work with the ( >c:\backup.txt) command output pipe.. It does not do the copy!

If I remove the pipe, the xcopy works.

Any ideas are appreciated very much...
