Package copies file to %public%\desktop - can I have it remove an old file if it exists

So we have a package that simply copies a simple single file to the root desktop %public%\desktop

With a small update to that file, I want to have a second item in that install that says something like the below example

If file %public%\desktop\Filename.txt exists, delete it.

Can this be done?

  • Three options:

    1. Make a dumb command step that deletes that file, whether its there or not, with Step>Options>Error Mode:Continue
    2. Make a command step that looks for that file and deletes it if present
    3. Make a command step to delete it, that has a condition set as below
