    Your question is a bit non-specific. What do you mean "not working?" Do you get an error? Nothing appears? Something else? What specifically have you tried? What files are located in the package's directory? Can you include your package.xml here? It's possible you're doing something wrong, but we have no idea what that might be simply from this question.

  • I downloaded Meta data for community and pushing the code to destination org by ANT.Where as its saying build successful but in destination org communities are not getting created. Here is the package.xml <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <Package xmlns="soap.sforce.com/2006/04/metadata"> <types> <members>*</members> <name>Community</name> </types> <version>33.0</version> </Package> Jan 13, 2016 at 12:52
