Greetings,
I am havingin trouble getting the Script to recognize %USERPROFILE%.     I have the following Code, and when it runs It doesn't give me any error, but it doesn't create a Folder and it doesn't copy the files over.   Can someone please take a look at my code and see where I am going wrong?
Set fso     = wscript.createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
...
strUserProfile = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%USERPROFILE%")
lotusNotes8FolderPath = strUserProfile & "\local settings\application data\lotus\notes\"
...
fso.copyfolder lotusNotes8FolderPath, folder.path & "\Notes8ProfileData", True

Think you just need to test those values - it should work as-is...
Set fso     = wscript.createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
...
strUserProfile = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%USERPROFILE%")
lotusNotes8FolderPath = strUserProfile & "\local settings\application data\lotus\notes\"
msgbox strUserProfile
msgbox lotusNotes8FolderPath
msgbox folder.path
fso.copyfolder lotusNotes8FolderPath, folder.path & "\Notes8ProfileData", True

Thanks for the troubleshooting help.  When i used the msgboxes, I realized that I had the variable as: lotusNotes8FolderPath = strUserProfile & "\local settings\application data\lotus\notes\"
instead of
lotusNotes8FolderPath = strUserProfile & "\local settings\application data\lotus\notes"
the first one would have been good for fso.copyfile, but I was using fso.copyfolder.   After that changes it works correctly.
