This is a very basic task to show how to copy a file from location A to location B.

Although i'm using absolute paths, which restricts me to windows boxes... the action script used works on any OS assuming you use the proper pathing methodology.

Also, if you do not have the relevance that sinucus suggests, then this could fail if the file that you are copying to already exists. Also, the relevance will not go to false without it, which will report as failed if it is a fixlet and not a task.

might want to also include a " not exists file "c:\users\daniel\desktop\test.txt" " in the relevance. This will ensure that the fixlet/task cannot be run twice.
