Will it unescape even when %FAILSTEP_OUTPUT% is used as part of the Message text of an email?

If so, I'll have to put together an example as it's not unescaping for me under 6.3.

Is there a way to send non-escaped FAILSTEP_OUTPUT email?

List Files action should support Exclude

Just a request, but I would like to see List Files support EXCLUDE files / dirs like most file operations. In fact, it should have the big INCLUDE and EXCLUDE entry fields and support #1, #2, and #3...

That's good advice -- Beyond Compare is a great tool (used it for years). I was just hoping I could do it all from VBP. You guys should work out a deal with them and offer Compare/Diff/Merge/Sync...

How might I copy on only diffs between two folders into a third?

Here's the scenario --

* I have Folder A (which contains a copy of my latest source code)

*...

My sincere apologies as this was all completely my fault. I ended up making a non-obvious but rather stupid mistake. As I explained before, I indeed do have a project macro (or rather a global...

Problem using Vault

I am using the latest version of VBP (6.2a) and the latest version of Vault (3.5.1). When I have my Vault database configured as localhost, VBP decides it does not need to enter the vault -host...

Problem Resolved

It definitely has nothing to do with network access as no network access is performed in the VBP script. Also, you don't even have to run the script to see the problem. I have the exact same result...

To be clear, our Web Service simply executes VBP scripts but does not save them. The most telling demonstration, however, is the one I listed previously, which simply starts and exits the VBP GUI...

VBP process delays terminating

Smile It works!!!

The latest beta fixes the problem with creating empty directories for non-matching folders. Thanks.

Correct -- according to my tests with the latest Beta, you no longer need to check the "Process empty folders" option to get things to work as expected.

Thanks for fixing this.

No -- the files were not being reported as copied and not physically copied either. And I definitely do not have the "Do not copy..." option checked. The really odd thing, however, is that all of...

Include / Exclude boxes sized differently in 6.2 Beta

This is admittedly picky, but the Include and Exclude boxes (found on the Files tab of various file operations) have lost their symmetry in the 6.2 beta. They used to be the same size in 6.1, but...
