I am having difficult solving the following post-build event command error. I am using Eazfuscator.Net for obfuscation. So the first line is automatically added by it. Then, I needed a copy of the DLL file to a specific path. So I wrote the second command. When I build my project I have the following error:
The command "if /I "Debug" == "Release" Eazfuscator.NET.exe "C:\Users\XXX\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\Core\Core\bin\Debug\Core.dll" --msbuild-project-path "C:\Users\XXX\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\Core\Core\Core.csproj" --msbuild-project-configuration "Debug" --msbuild-project-platform "AnyCPU" --msbuild-solution-path "C:\Users\XXX\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\Core\Core.sln" -n --newline-flush -v 3.3<br />
c:\Windows\System32\xcopy.exe "C:\Users\XXX\Documents\Visual Studio 2012\Projects\Core\Core\bin\Debug\Core.dll" C:\Users\XXX\Inetpub\wwwroot\WebService\bin" exited with code 2.

My commands in the post-build:
Command 1:
if /I "$(ConfigurationName)" == "Release" Eazfuscator.NET.exe "$(TargetPath)" --msbuild-project-path "$(ProjectPath)" --msbuild-project-configuration "$(ConfigurationName)" --msbuild-project-platform "$(PlatformName)" --msbuild-solution-path "$(SolutionPath)" -n --newline-flush -v 3.3

Command 2:
c:\Windows\System32\xcopy.exe "$(TargetPath)" C:\Users\XXX\Inetpub\wwwroot\WebService\bin

I tried if my commands are correct by running them alone and it seems to be working fine. But when I keep them both I have an error. Can someone shed a light please? Thanks in advance.

I think you need to escape your second command path, and you should have it skip prompting:

c:\Windows\System32\xcopy.exe "$(TargetPath)" "C:\Users\XXX\Inetpub\wwwroot\WebService\bin" /y
