Batch script with XXCOPY in System32

Hi all,

I just installed Shutter Pro (under Win7 Pro 64 bits), all in French, and I intended to use it to launch backup batches.
For these backups I have long used EXCELLENT xxcopy(.exe) (from PIXELAB now no longer available) and also XcopyEx(.exe) from ASTASE for example.

In short, in the top window (1a) of Shutter I have in Event the scheduled time and in the bottom window (2a) of Shutter I have in Action my batch command line {"E:\BAT\ESSA.BAT"}
This batch is for example (tested example):
[xxcopy E:\Chantier\Travails\*. * F:\Chantier\Travails\]

But I still get the message in the cmd window:
"'xxcopy' is not recognized as an internal or external command, an executable program or a batch file."
I specify that this batch works for years on the 'Task Scheduler' of Windows, that xxcopy.exe is the 64-bit version, that it is located at C:\Windows\System32\XXCOPY.EXE and that this path is well in the environment variable Path: xxcopy.exe can be called from the simple command [xxcopy] in a simple ordinary cmd.exe console.

Writing the command line in Shutter (instead of calling the batch) causes the following 'Statut' message [ Error: Failed to execute C:\Windows\System32\XXCOPY.EXE E:\Chantier\Travails\*. * F:\Site\Works\: 2 ]

Just for xxcopy. XcopyEx, xcopy (Windows)... are launched without problem.
Never before seen this type of bug.

If anyone knows how to deal with this error I am interested because I find Shutter Pro pleasant and I wish I could keep it for the job.

Re: Batch script with XXCOPY in System32

Hello.

I have just tested the following scenarios using the latest Shutter 4.4 on Windows 10:

1. Execute XCOPY in a command prompt window.
2. Execute *.bat file (which calls XCOPY) in a command prompt window.
3. Execute XCOPY in Shutter via the Run Program action.
4. Execute *.bat file (which calls XCOPY) in Shutter via the Run Program action.

All cases worked as expected. In all cases XCOPY was called without specifying the full path.

In your case, if it works with XCOPY but not with XXCOPY, it suggests an issue specific to your setup of XXCOPY. It could be security related.

Try the following batch file with both XCOPY and XXCOPY. Try calling it from a command prompt window and via Shutter. It will display the PATH variable and the exit code from XCOPY/XXCOPY. It might help identify discrepancies in your setup.

@echo off
timeout 2
echo %PATH%
echo Executing...
xcopy C:\Temp\Copy1 C:\Temp\Copy2
echo Error code...
echo %ERRORLEVEL%
pause

I think the error code 9009 is a Shutter error code.

For info the xxcopy output error code:

Re: Batch script with XXCOPY in System32

Of course, I looked for myself.
After downloading and installing (just for testing) another task sheduler I have the same behavior.
Tease, so I tried another test but, after having compiled my batch in exe, by launching this time the compiled exe. And there it works!

The question remains why the xxcopy program is not seen when it is called by the batch in a task sheduler ?
So for example if I call with Schutter this batch

esso.bat:

@echo off
echo:

Re: Batch script with XXCOPY in System32

The 9009 exit code is issued by the operating system. It corresponds to "file not found" error.

From your posts it is pretty clear that your scripts execute with different environment variables and maybe even by different users! That is the only way how I can explain different %PATH% variables, different directory listing (possibly due to permissions of different users), and even the difference in language (also a per-user locale configuration).

I think you should check what shell is executing your BAT files. Some configuration is not normal in your system.

Also, one directory listing shows "wow32.dll" but the other "wow64.dll", which suggests even a different executable architecture, i.e. 32-bit vs 64-bit.

Re: Batch script with XXCOPY in System32

I think you're right. I came to the conclusion that Shutter (32 bit) launches the batch in a 32-bit environment.
XXopy is 64-bit and is therefore not read by the batch in its 32-bit environment.
So presumably it is impossible for Shutter to launch batch 64-bit exes.

And I don't see any solutions to work around this.

Re: Batch script with XXCOPY in System32

I think installing appropriate versions of XXCOPY into both System32 and SysWOW64 directories should resolve the issue.

See this article for the differences between these two directories, for example:
https://www.howtogeek.com/326509/whats- … n-windows/

Alternatively, you can specify the full path to the XXCOPY executable, or call XXCOPY directly within Shutter, instead of the BAT file.

By the way, installing 3rd party applications into the Windows system folders is not the best practice. It is safer to just add arbitrary paths to the %PATH% environment variable.

Re: Batch script with XXCOPY in System32

You said:

This gives the error:
'xxcopy' is not recognized as an internal command
or external, an executable program or a batch file.
In fact, calling a batch from Shutter opens the prompt from C:\Windows\SysWOW64\cmd.exe (and not C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe). You mentioned the differences between System32 and SysWOW64 (we know them), in this case it fully plays their role.

Indeed so you are proposing:

> I think installing appropriate versions of XXCOPY into both

Of course we could ... But there is obviously an interest in using the 64-bit version, in copying speed and in cache management. So maybe a 64bit version of Schuller would be welcome for 64-bit OS.

> By the way, installing 3rd party applications into the Windows

Yes. Surely. But xxcopy has its own installer which places the different files where they should be. It is not a program badly hacked and simply copied into a directory.


Finally I think that in the absence of an upcoming availability of Schuller in a 64-bit version we will uninstall this application. Too bad, however.

Re: Batch script with XXCOPY in System32

There is no noticeable benefit in having a 64-bit version of Shutter.

Processor architecture (32 vs 64 bit) plays a big role when applications need to address a continuous block of memory larger than 4GB, or when prolong and complex operations on 64-bit words are required. For example, encryption and video encoding operations can see noticeable benefit if coded up appropriately. Shutter spends more than 99% of the time just waiting for user and system events, so 64-bit architecture will offer no benefit, but would increase maintenance cost.

There is also no issue with interoperability between 32-bit and 64-bit applications, i.e. 32-bit applications can call 64-bit applications as well as in reverse without any issues. That means that Shutter can execute either 32-bit or 64-bit version of XXCOPY, without any difference.

You can install a 64-bit version of XXCOPY in to the %PATH% variable, or install 64-bit version into both System32 and SysWOW64 directories. This will make sure that both 32-bit and 64-bit applications will always call a 64-bit version of XXCOPY.

It really does not not matter which processor architecture is used by Shutter.

Re: Batch script with XXCOPY in System32

OK, here is one solution (thanks to Otomatic) that I put here, it could be used for others...

We have already encountered this problem in the past with some 32 bit applications and file opening dialogs. Without being able to intervene on them to circumvent this limitation

In fact, with these 32 bit software under Windows 64 bit, when you request the system32 folder you are redirected transparently to the SysWOW64 folder while seeing system32.

As you know, when a 32-bit program is run on a 64-bit Windows (except 32 bit programs running at low level), a 32-bit emulator will be invoked to handle this 32-bit program.

To get the "right" system32 folder, you must type type (or choose if visible depending on your machine) [sysnative] in the "File name" area of the file opening form (instead of sytem32). In the case mentioned here we will call xxcopy by entering
C:\Windows\Sysnative\xxcopy or %windi%\Sysnative\xxcopy in the batch when called by Schutter.


Here some info to know more about sysnative
