Well first we must identify the line code that caused the error.
You can either install vb there, or use error handling in your code to identify it, or try to remove the suspected offending line and see if it removes the error.

i am sure it is not the problem of program code because i tested the program in different OS.  this problem happen only in that particular machine with NT installed.
so i am quite sure it is the NT setting problem instead of program code.

Check if you have something to do with Scripting Access. Hope your system can control if Windows Scripting is allowed or not. Since, FSO needs Windows Scripting to be in Windows, to run through.

If you'd like to look at:

Hi,

   Here is the reason why this error come out :

You tried to write to a write-protected disk, to access a locked file, or to use UNLOCK on a file that was not locked.

POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS:

Remove write-protection from the disk.

Unlock the file before attempting access.

Lock the file before trying to unlock it.

Remove the UNLOCK statement.

Insert error checking to test for disk/file status before attempting WRITE or UNLOCK operations.

Cheers,
Sweetpillow :)

Try using "Name" function from VB. Before you try make sure that you have closed the file.

I hope this will help you
