VBScript fso.deletefolder permission denied error on Vista

Hi,

I want to add a function to delete the Outlook cache folder from my VBscript login script.

The additional code runs Ok but the folder is not deleted.

I took it out of the main body of the login script and tested separately and I get a permission denied error.

I have tested the script on another test folder on my desktop where I know I have permissions and it deletes the folder and displays the message.

Our PCs are Vista by the way...

Here is my script

dim WSHShell, fullpath, objFSO
set objFSO=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set WSHshell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
path="%userprofile%"
fullpath= WSHshell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings(path)
sCurrUsrPath = (fullpath & "\Appdata\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\")

'Verify whether the Cache exists and delete it
If objFSO.FolderExists(sCurrUsrPath) Then
Const DeleteReadOnly = True
objFSO.DeleteFolder(sCurrUsrPath), DeleteReadOnly

msgbox "The Cache has been cleared successfully"

Else

msgbox "Cannot find the Cache. It may have been cleared already."

End If

Thanks in advance for any help!
Regards

Hi,

Sorry, I have fixed the issue, strangely when I took out the / at the end of the path it worked.

eg: Orginal path
sCurrUsrPath = (fullpath & "\Appdata\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\")

Updated path
sCurrUsrPath = (fullpath & "\Appdata\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files")

Thanks anyway!

Launch your app with "Run as administrator". Or, disable UAC.

It is possible that some files are in use. If you do have admin rights, then I guess some files are in use? UAC may not be the issue.
