I have this script (attached) that should remove a folder called VPNClient4x and associated contents and replace it by copying over a folder called VPNClient5x and associated contents.  For some reason it isn't copying over the folder as it should.  Could someone please point me in the right direction? Thanks.
Dim objShell, RegLocate
 

'''Create Message Box Dialog
 

msgbox "Beginning the Zone Labs uninstall and VPN Client 5 install", 0, "Zone Labs Uninstall"
 

Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
 

'''Close Specific Applications
 

On error resume next
 

objShell.run("tskill iclient /a"), 0, True
 
 

objShell.run("tskill vsmon /a"), 0, True
 

'''Zone Labs Uninstall
 

objShell.run("msiexec.exe /X{45295FCF-B5D0-415E-8348-5C60BEE2A903} INSTALLPASSWORD=dakota1 REBOOTPROMPTWITHSILENT=NO REBOOT=R /qb!"), 0, True
 

'''Delete 2 Folders VPNClient4x and Zone Labs)

Set objFSO = CreateObject ("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

objFSO.DeleteFolder("C:\VPNClient4x")

objFSO.DeleteFolder("C:\Program Files\Zone Labs")
 

'''Copy New VPN Client to Laptop

Const OverWriteFiles = True

objFSO.CopyFolder "VPNClient5x" , "C:\VPNClient5x" , OverWriteFiles
 

'''msgbox "The Uninstall Process Is Complete Please press OK to start installing the VPN Client", 0, "Completed"
 

'''Install VPN 5

objShell.run("c:\VPNClient5x\vpnclient_setup.exe /passive"), 0, True

You will need to enter the full path of the source:

objFSO.CopyFolder "c:\SourceVPNClient5x" , "C:\VPNClient5x" , Overwrite

Shouldn't it accept the default of the script location for source path?  i need it to copy from the same directory source location as the script.

You are correct, the folder path does default to wherever the script is.

The script runs for me. i had to comment out the Zone Labs Uninstall command, which was giving me problems.

Do you have any debuggers installed, Visual Studio 2005/2008?

The following command allows you to debug the script:
wscript.exe //d //x C:\test.vbs
Dim objShell, RegLocate

 

'''Create Message Box Dialog

 

msgbox "Beginning the Zone Labs uninstall and VPN Client 5 install", 0, "Zone Labs Uninstall"

 

Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

objShell.run("tskill iclient /a"), 0, True

objShell.run("tskill vsmon /a"), 0, True

Thanks V.  We were finally able to make it work by moving the copy code further up in the script.  ie:

msgbox "Beginning the Zone Labs uninstall and VPN Client 5 install", 0, "Zone Labs Uninstall"

On error resume next

'''Delete Folder VPNClient4x
Set objFSO = CreateObject ("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
objFSO.DeleteFolder("C:\VPNClient4x")

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
 
'objFSO.CopyFile strFileOrigination, strFileDestination, OverwriteExisting

'''Copy New VPN Client to Laptop
Const OverWriteFiles = True
objFSO.CopyFolder "VPNClient5x" , "C:\VPNClient5x" , OverWriteFiles

'''Close Specific Applications

Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

objShell.run("tskill iclient /a"), 0, True


objShell.run("tskill vsmon /a"), 0, True
