Quick one on FSO

Using this:
        Set objFSO = New FileSystemObject
        Set objuser = GetObject("WinNT://myDC/" & txtInfo(2).Text & ",user")
        strSrcPath = objuser.homedirectory

How do I bring up an explorer window to strSrcPath's UNC?
(equivalent to performing Start->Run->\\Server\objUser)

I know I could shell a start command, but I don't want that route...

Hi sirbounty

The only way I can think that you will get this to work is

Set oShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

oShell.Run strSrcPath

Set oShell = Nothing

Regards
