You tried it like this?

CopyFile(_T("\\svchost.exe","c:\\%windir%\\svchost.exe"), 0);


error C2660: 'CopyFileW' : function does not take 2 arguments
warning C4002: too many actual parameters for macro '_T'

error C2660: 'CopyFileW' : function does not take 2 arguments

This is a different error. Read the documentation for CopyFile() and you will see that it takes 3 arguments, not 2.
