    Package Boot post execution deleting files

    strict

      using packageboot and postexecution to delete two files.  xml:


      <postexecution>

      <programs>

      <program type="exe"operation="runandwait"name="cmd.exe"pathtype="simplepath"path="%windir%\system32"successcode="0"failureaction="stop"enabled="true">del "C:\Users\Public\Desktop\Newforma Project Center Ninth Edition.lnk" /Q</program>

      <program type="exe"operation="runandwait"name="cmd.exe"pathtype="simplepath"path="%windir%\system32"successcode="0"failureaction="stop"enabled="true">del "C:\windows\temp\Newforma Project Center 9.2.msi" /Q</program>

      </programs>

      <services>

      </services>

      </postexecution>

       

      i enabled packageboot logging using this KB: SolarWinds Knowledge Base :: How to enable logging for PackageBoot issues

       

      The packageboot log shows this (after execution):

      2012/07/06 15:54:15:469 PID: 5164 TID: 2008 programobject::wassuccessexitcode() indicates the program exitcode: 0x0 is considered a success code

      2012/07/06 15:54:15:484 PID: 5164 TID: 2008 executionengine::executeitem() total filesinuse objects: 0

      2012/07/06 15:54:15:500 PID: 5164 TID: 2008 executionengine::executeitem() total service objects: 0

      2012/07/06 15:54:15:500 PID: 5164 TID: 2008 executionengine::executeitem() total process objects: 0

      2012/07/06 15:54:15:500 PID: 5164 TID: 2008 executionengine::executeitem() total program objects: 0

      2012/07/06 15:54:15:500 PID: 5164 TID: 2008 executionengine::executeitem() total filesinuse objects: 0

       

      Why would it show 'total program objects: 0"?

       

      my preexecute and execute worked just fine.

       

      Is there a KB or something with details and examples for packageboot?  i find the instructions in the xml file to be lacking.

       

      thanks!
