Destination on Device Specify the path on the device where the file or folder should be copied to.
Copy Rule Specify the conditions the package should follow when copying the file to the device.
  • Always copy the file to the device
  • Replace the file on the device if it is older than a file with the same name, or if the file does not exist on the device
  • Copy the file to the device if it does not already exist on the device
Do not uninstall the file Select this option to force the file to persist on the device even if the package is uninstalled.
Automatically Run Activity after Install Select this option to launch the file immediately after the package is delivered.
Add file header (Only applicable to Printers) Adds a file header to the files linked to Zebra printers that enables the file to be installed in the E:\ drive of the Zebra printer. Certain files, such as WiFi certificate files, must be installed on the E:\ drive, so the printer can use them for connectivity.

File headers cannot exceed 1024 characters.

Note: This setting is specific to printers. Select Printer from the Platform list on the Package Information screen of the New Package Wizard. If you add a WiFi certificate file to this package, then the name of the file must match one of the names listed in Zebra WiFi Certificate Requirements.
Wait until the program finishes before continuing Select this option to force installation to wait until the command specified in the preview field finishes executing before continuing with the installation.
Format Customize the command line options that are executed after the file is copied to the device. The %file% macro can be used instead of the actual file name and path.
Preview Displays the command to be executed after the file has been copied to the destination folder. After the Format field has been edited, you must click the Refresh button to update the Preview field.
Uninstall Enter the command used to uninstall the file during uninstallation of the package.
