Object not a collection error when running VBScript at login

Last Modified: 2013-11-25
I'm trying to run this VBScript through kix for Citrix login script. The VBScript runs fine when I run it manually after user has logged into the Citrix. However I want it to run by kix calling the vbscript. It calls fine but it doesn't seem to run too well at the moment.

VBScript forces changes of the timezone for citrix user

The error message I get is

AEDT.vbs(29, 1) Microsoft VBScript runtime error: Object not a collection

AEDT.vbs is the vbscript file I'm running from kix command
