I'm trying to create a script in AE CS5 extendscript. I'm haveing a little trouble getting some code to work, can anyone tell me what is wrong with this code? Am I missing something? I want this to execute when a button is clicked.

file.copy("E:\Work\CopyFile\*.*", "E:\Work\toHere");

Thanks for your help,

I am not an scripting wizard, so I can only offer very limited help. You might have a little better luck in the After Effects Expressions forum [link].

Sorry if this is "Did you plug it in?" question, but do you have After Effects > Preferences > General > Allow scripts to write files and access network checked?
