Simple RegEX Question/Advice

I am trying to return a element in VB6 using regular expressions. The trouble is when I attempt to use
s = m("$1")I get nothing and s = m I get the entire match but not the element I want.

Perhaps a VB guru can tell me what is wrong with my syntax here:

---------------code---------------
Open "c:\test.htm" For Input As #1
  strText = Input(LOF(1), #1)
  Close #1

Set regEX = New RegExp
Dim s As String
Dim strtext As String
Dim m, matches

regEX.IgnoreCase = True
regEX.Global = True
regEX.MultiLine = True

regEX.Pattern = "window\.location.*?""(http://.*?)"""
Set matches = regEX.Execute(strText)


For Each m In matches
 If regEX.Test(m) Then
 s = m("$1")
 End If
Next

MsgBox s
