Trying to run xcopy:

xcopy \\%logonserver%\netlogon\ C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VSTA\Pipeline\

fails with Invalid parameter.. I've tried it using this as well:

xcopy "\\%logonserver%\netlogon\" \\%computername%\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VSTA\Pipeline\

that fails as well..

Just to make sure I wasnt going nuts I did

xcopy c:\test.txt c:\temp and that worked...

so is it something to do with UNC paths?
