Launching Windows commands on remote agent

In Bamboo 5.1, I'm trying to configure a remote agent to run a build of a plan.

The remote agent successfully runs every task in the job, except the last one containing a simple Windows command to move a file ("move" Windows command configured in Bamboo as an executable).

I've tried to specify the command in several ways (with complete path or not) and then trying to use a different command (xcopy), but all the tries failed with the same error:

"Unable to find executable at move"


"Unable to find executable at xcopy"

What I'm missing or doing wrong?

What is the syntax you are using? Are you trying to move the executable to a different location on the same target system or on a different one? One hint, Robocopy does a much better job of communicating errors than xcopy does.
