exactly as the syntax in Vb6 help i use :
1.Dim FileSys
2.Set FileSys = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Seems like you have installed the scripting services on your machine and the other machine does not have that installed.

Go to http://msdn.microsoft.com/scripting/default.htm?/scripting/windowshost/

to get the latest version of the Windows scripting host and install it on the other computer.
