I want to create a folder in My Documents on another persons computer via a vbscript.  I want to have a bat file open the VBS file after the user clicks on it and run the script.  How do I get this to occur in the users My Documents folder without knowing who the current user is?

Save the code below to a file named newfolder.vbs.  (Change the line that has "\NewDirectory" to the directory name you would like to create.)

Call newfolder.vbs from your batch like this:
cscript newfolder.vbs


Set objWshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strUserProfile = objWshShell.Environment("PROCESS")("UserProfile")
 
strNewDirectory = strUserProfile + "\NewDirectory" 
 
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
 
on error resume next
Set objFolder = objFSO.CreateFolder(strNewDirectory)
on error goto 0
 
WScript.Quit 

Open in new window
