The system cannot find the file specified 80070002

The problem arises on the "WshShell.Run custominst" line.  H: is a network drive mapped earlier in the script.  I have tried Epic2002_Custom and Epic2002_Custom.EXE as the executable name, both stating that the system cannot find the file specified.  I'm sure it's just something with my syntax, but nonetheless I havent figured it out.

Dim WshShell
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Dim custominst
custominst = ("H:\Epic Summer 2004\epicinstall2004\Epic2002_Custom")
WshShell.Run custominst
WScript.Quit

Try this


custominst = "H:\Epic Summer 2004\epicinstall2004\Epic2002_Custom"


instead of


custominst = ("H:\Epic Summer 2004\epicinstall2004\Epic2002_Custom")

Are you sure your mapping took for the H: drive?

same error, actually i had the parenthesis around it because i thought it might have had something to do with the spaces in the path, so i was doing goofy stuff like:

custominst = ("h:\Epic" & " " & "Summer" & " " & "2004\epicinstall2004\Epic2002_Custom")

in hopes that it might have been that.  Unless I was still keeping the spacing problem?

Wait, that just made me think.  i added this:


Dim quote
quote = Chr(34)

WshShell.Run quote & custominst & quote

and it worked!

I gave the points to EDDY because he made me rethink my spacing issue.

it was interpreting the file to be h:\Epic and that was all...
