Problem fixed - Handling of external command line

Following up on the old thread "Handling of external command line post-publish" at

Creating a batch file and pointing at it from the citydesk command line using

cmd /c C:\cdpost.bat

solved the problem and now my site is uploaded automatically via SCP (the only upload protocol my web host now allows, by the way) post publish.

Oddly, putting the word "pause" at the end of the batch file did not seem to have any affect -- the window still disappears when complete. Oh well.

Thanks to everyone for their help. It takes me a while to get around to these things!
