Template notifications on Windows not working on 11.4.4 or 11.4.0


#1

The sample code below will never execute the “something” windows_batch command
however many times I update the template.

After a search on the web I found that someone had a similar issue since v10.
Is it possible that this issue still exists? Thanks

windows_batch “something” do
code <<-EOH
echo “this will not execute, but it should” > c:\testoutput.txt 2>&1
EOH
action :nothing
end

template “c:\test.config” do
source 'test.config.erb’
notifies :run, resources(:windows_batch => “something”), :immediately
end


#2

Try specifying the template with forward slash – it is possible you are
hitting the issue below:

Thanks.
