Process Files step -- fail if no matching files found?

Hello-

Is there a way to fail a process files step if there are no files found matching a given filter? I see that in the copy files step there is an option to fail the step if there are no files to copy. I am looking for a similar option for the process files step.

Example:

Given the following folder:
c:\temp\v1.0\bin

Process all files in the folder only including files matching *V1.0.dll
If there are no Dlls matching the filter, I would like the step to fail.

Currently, the step gets skipped along with all of its children steps.

You can't fail the Process Files step itself in that situation, but in the following sibling step, you could check the temporary macro PROCFILES_COUNT and fail the build if it is 0. See the attached project.
