"Broken again by Windows service pack upgrade"

February 24, 2011  |  By Alan Mintaka

 |  Version: XXCOPY 3.08.0

Pros

Great copy utility when it works

Cons

Has a Windows version check that renders it useless in batch files whenever a Windows Service Pack is released

Summary

XXCopy is once again broken for use in batch files, this time by the Windows 7 SP1 update. Whenever Windows issues a service pack update, and sometimes for routine non-service pack updates, XXCopy starts issuing this prompt:

Caution!!! This version of XXCOPY has never been tested
in the current Operating System environment.
You should acquire the latest version of XXCOPY
from the XXCOPY web site (http://www.xxcopy.com).

Run this program at your own risk.

Press any key except <ESC> within 2 minutes to continue.
Otherwise, the program will terminate automatically.

which of course breaks it for use in batch files, because you won't always be hanging around to hit a key when it stalls like this. It's an annoying, chronic problem that the authors just won't fix. Instead, they issue a workaround patch that breaks the next time Windows issues an update. Too bad. It has the potential to be a great program.
