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
