Dear all experts,

I would like to write a .vbs VBScript program to popup the current path. How can I get such result?

TestPath.vbs

msgbox (App.Path)

It is seem that the App.Path is not work in above program.

Please advise, thank you very much.

Try use the GetAbsolutePathName method in FSO, example:

test.vbs:

function ShowAbsolutePath(path)
   Dim fso
   Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")  
   ShowAbsolutePath = fso.GetAbsolutePathName(path)  
end function

msgbox ShowAbsolutePath(".")

This will get the file and/or folder path

scriptfile = WScript.ScriptFullName
Msgbox scriptfile

Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set f = fso.GetFile(scriptfile)
Msgbox f.ParentFolder
