VBScript ends when I use CScript XXXX.vbs

The following VBScript code works but displays the informational message:

'set permissions on new home folder  
                    Set objWsh = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
                    If objFSO.FolderExists(strHomeFolder) Then
                    ' Uncheck inherit permissions on home folder.
                    objWsh.run "c:\WINNT\xcacls.vbs \\oak\Users$\" & strNTName & " /I copy", 1, True
                    'remove Authenticated Users from ACL'
                    objWsh.run "c:\WINNT\xcacls.vbs \\oak\Users$\" & strNTName & " /r ""NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users""", 1, True
                    'Add SYSTEM account to ACL
                    objWsh.run "c:\WINNT\xcacls.vbs \\oak\Users$\" & strNTName & " /G ""NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM"":F", 1, True
                    'Add Administrators group to ACL'
                    objWsh.run "c:\WINNT\xcacls.vbs \\oak\Users$\" & strNTName & " /E /G administrators:F", 1, True
                    End If

When I insert "cscript" (e.g. objWSH.run "cscript c:\WINNT\xcacls.vbs...) the first line executes and a command window opens showing the status but then the script ends without executing the remaining lines of code.
Any thoughts on supressing the informational dialog box without halting the script?

Thanks.

try passing it through cmd or start..


objWsh.run "cmd /c cscript c:\WINNT\xcacls.vbs \\oak\Users$\" & strNTName & " /I copy", 1, True

'or

objWsh.run "start /wait c:\WINNT\xcacls.vbs \\oak\Users$\" & strNTName & " /r ""NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users""", 1, True

Open in new window

Sirbounty,

Thanks. The first option worked perfectly!

You saved me hours of "trial-and-error" and "google"
