Is it possible to use a set variable task to modify the value of a variable to obtain a new value with a regular expression?
For example, I might have a variable called file.path and from that generate a new variable called file.name
file.path = c:\test\rob\outer\filename.txt
I want to perform an operation on that variable value to obtain just
file.name = filename.txt
a regex operating on file.path [^\\]*$ would equate to that value but I have had no success in making this work.

Before version 4.0, it was not possible to use a regular expression in a Set Variable task. At version 4.0 and beyond, the Replace(text, regex, replacement) function may be used.
