VBScript and progress bar are a pain.
You could do better and easier with Powershell and the cmdlet write-progress

You can use the progress bar when copying a file with this code.

Regards,

Rob.
strFile = "C:\Temp\MyFile.txt"
strDestination = "C:\Temp\DestinationFolder"
Const FOF_CREATEPROGRESSDLG = &H10&
Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
Set objTargetFolder = objShell.NameSpace(strDestination)
If Not objTargetFolder Is Nothing Then
	objTargetFolder.CopyHere strFile, FOF_CREATEPROGRESSDLG
End If

Open in new window

Not that I know of.  It's a system dialog, which you cannot customise.

I haven't tested it, but maybe try changing this:
Const FOF_CREATEPROGRESSDLG = &H10&

to this
Const FOF_CREATEPROGRESSDLG = &H110&

Regards,

Rob.
