Can anybody confirm this bug (Delete files) PAD 2.14

Hello guys

 

After the latest update to PAD 2.14 I have noticed a problem with "Delete Files"

 

I have used wildcards (*.txt) in "Delete Files" as long as I can remember, but after 2.14 it no longer works.
Giving the full filename to "Delete files" works, but not what I really wanted.

The below example does not work

Next example with full filename works.

I can't find an update, while on 2.13 - So i can't test on 2.14. But it works for me.

Alternatively, you can try to use Get files in folder with the wildcard and then use the variable as parameter in the Delete files.

I have change my flows, so I don't use wildcards anymore, would just like to know if anybody else could confirm the problem in 2.14

I believe all the file operations in  2.14 cannot handle wildcards. My file copy failed with wildcards.

Hello to all.

 

Issue will be fixed with the next release of Power Automate for desktop that will take place in mid-December.

Hello
mid-December?? wtf.

MS have really made us work hard to get existing scripts to work after the 2.14 update, and now you tell us that you will send out a fix, next month?

Not the kind of support that I would expect from MS.

It is confirmed on my system. It does not work.

The workaround is the get the list of files and carry out the file operation on the individual file.

I know, but I would like MS to fix all the mess they created with 2.14.
I have made so many workarounds since the release of 2.14 to keep our scripts running.
Apperently they will relase a new version mid-december that should fix all the problems made in 2.14
I am definitely not going to be one of the first to install it this time........
