VBS - Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile -question-

Hi,

The following code creates the STRfootprintQT1 file on the C:\ root

Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strFootprintQT1, True)

Is there any way to change this code so that the STRfootprintQT1 is created under the user %appdata% and placed on folder named FOOTPRINT.

The folder FOOTPRINT does not exist and it will need to be created the first time the script runs.
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 

strFootprintQT1 = strAppData & "\QUICKTIMEQTPlayer.dat"
strFootprintQT2 = strAppData & "\QUICKTIMEQTP.dat"
strUserDir = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%USERPROFILE%")
strAppData = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%APPDATA%")


If objFSO.FileExists(strFileQT) = True Then
	If objFSO.FileExists(strFootprintQT1) = False Then
		objFSO.CopyFile strRegFileQT1, strAppData & "\Apple Computer\QuickTime\"
		Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strFootprintQT1, True)

Looks to me as though the appdat needs to be be moved up a few lines then add a test for folder creation

Chris
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 

strAppData = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%APPDATA%")
strFootprintQT1 = strAppData & "\QUICKTIMEQTPlayer.dat"
strFootprintQT2 = strAppData & "\QUICKTIMEQTP.dat"
strUserDir = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%USERPROFILE%")

if not objFSO.folderexists(strFootprintQT1) then
    objFSO.createfolder(strFootprintQT1)
end if

If objFSO.FileExists(strFileQT) = True Then
	If objFSO.FileExists(strFootprintQT1) = False Then
		objFSO.CopyFile strRegFileQT1, strAppData & "\Apple Computer\QuickTime\"
		Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strFootprintQT1, True)

Overlooked the footprint itself!

et objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 

strAppData = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%APPDATA%")
strFootprintQT1 = strAppData & "\footprint" & "\QUICKTIMEQTPlayer.dat"
strFootprintQT2 = strAppData & "\QUICKTIMEQTP.dat"
strUserDir = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%USERPROFILE%")

if not objFSO.folderexists(strappdata & "\footprint") then
    objFSO.createfolder(strappdata & "\footprint")
end if

Here is the code that I am using. I am having problems merging the code that you have specified above to mine.

The goal is to change the Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strFootprintQT1, True) so that the STRfootprintQT1 and STRfootprintQT12 is created under the user %appdata% and placed on folder named FOOTPRINT.

The folder FOOTPRINT does not exist and it will need to be created the first time the script runs only if the If objFSO.FileExists(strFileQT) = True (the application exists)

Can you please help.  
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell") 
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 

strFileQT = "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QuickTimePlayer.exe" 
strRegFileQT1 = "\\dc1\SYSVOL\syracuse.local\scripts\QTPlayerSession.xml"
strFootprintQT1 = strAppData & "\QUICKTIMEQTPlayer.dat"
strRegFileQT2 = "\\dc1\SYSVOL\syracuse.local\scripts\QuickTime.qtp"
strFootprintQT2 = strAppData & "\QUICKTIMEQTP.dat"
strUserDir = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%USERPROFILE%")
strAppData = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%APPDATA%")


If objFSO.FileExists(strFileQT) = True Then
	If objFSO.FileExists(strFootprintQT1) = False Then
		objFSO.CopyFile strRegFileQT1, strAppData & "\Apple Computer\QuickTime\"
		Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strFootprintQT1, True) 
		objFile.Close 
	End If

	If objFSO.FileExists(strFootprintQT2) = False Then
		objFSO.CopyFile strRegFileQT2, strUserDir & "\Local Settings\Application Data\Apple Computer\QuickTime\"
		Set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(strFootprintQT2, True) 
		objFile.Close  
	End if 
End If
