How to specify multiple Post-Build Events?

P: n/a
Hi:

I'm using VC 7.1. I like to have multiple actions taken after a build is
complete. For example, I'd like to copy the files into multiple directories.
But so far I can only specify ONE action, seems no way to specify more than
one action there, I might be able to use a batch file for it but just whish
there is something better. Guess I must have missed something. any info is
appreciated.

Thanks In Advance!

Hi Polaris,

I don't think there is a way to specify more than one action. Batch
files were always the way I've done more than one action. If batch
files aren't powerful enough for you, you could write some of your
actions in VBscript.
