Microsoft VBScript runtime error: Object required: 'objfso' in (50, 13)

I have been modifying a script to create and map a drive if it does not exist. I am not able to get past the error indicated above. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The code is as follows:


Set objGroupRFTime = GetObject("LDAP://CN=RFEM Time,OU=Department-function distribution groups,OU=RFEM,DC=RFEK,DC=com")
 
For Each oUser In objGroupRFTime.Members
      
   If oUser.Class = "user" Then
 
   Set objNet = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")
   Set FSO = CreateObject("scripting.filesystemobject")
 
   sUserName = objNet.UserName
   sDomainName= objNet.UserDomain
 
   If LCase(oUser.samAccountName) = LCase(sUserName) Then
      folderToCheckFor = "\\rfaccount\d$\OLMS\Orion\RFEMTime\" & sUserName
      If (FSO.FolderExists(folderToCheckFor)) = False Then
         FSO.CreateFolder(folderToCheckFor)
         Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
         
         for i=1 to 15
            if objfso.folderexists(folderToCheckFor)<>0 then
               Call WshShell.Run("CACLS " & folderToCheckFor & " /T /E /C /G " & sDomainName & "\" & sUserName & ":F",2,True)  
               exit for
            end if
            WScript.Sleep 1000
         next
         
         Set WshShell = Nothing      
      End If
      
      a="\\rfaccount\d$\OLMS\Orion\RFEMTime\" & sUserName
      
      If FSO.DriveExists("W:") = False Then
         for i=1 to 15
            If objfso.folderexists(a)<>0 Then
               objnet.mapnetworkdrive "w:",a
               exit for
            end if
            WScript.Sleep 1000
         next
      Else
 
         objnet.removenetworkdrive "w:", True
         WScript.sleep 1000
         for i=1 to 15
            if objfso.folderexists(a)<>0 then         
               objnet.mapnetworkdrive "w:",a
               exit for
            end if
            WScript.Sleep 1000
         next
      End If
 
   End If
   Set FSO = Nothing
   Set objNet = Nothing
 
   End If
   oUser.SetInfo
   Set oUser = Nothing
Next
 
WScript.Quit
 
for i=1 to 15
  If objfso.folderexists(a)<>0 then
     objnet.mapnetworkdrive "w:",a
     Exit for

Correct - you can call the reference to the file system object anything...
For example:

Set PeanutButter = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

You just have to be certain you always use it as that name in your code...

Set objFolder = PeanutButter.GetFolder("C:\Folder\")
If PeanutButter.FolderExists("C:\Folder\") Then  ' ...

Please and thank you. The code works if an administrator but not as a user. I am getting the error at 29,10 Permission denied. I have shared out the location with full permissions in an effort to determine the cause with the same result. I have also granted NTFS level permissions. Still no luck, any ideas?

Line 29 is blank...but I can tell you're trying to access an administrative/hidden share (d$) which is restricted for admins only...

So now that I have my mental defect out of the way! I have removed the call to the hidden share and replaced it with the share name and all works quite smoothly. Thank you for your rapid replies to this issue. In addition, so that I may learn from this, what was it that was changed in the script to make it function correctly?

I see now, on lines 34,45 and 65 the obj was removed clarifying the call to the FSO.folderexisits variable.
