I got a invalid parameters error.. Also I used the exact command but specified a specific user instead of %userprofile% and it worked. So I know there are no mistakes in my paths

I did a little more testing and I removed the docs and settings from the destination and it didnt error out but it just defaulted to the users I was running it with. i need it to copy to all users

Hi,

You can try the following vbscript.

Prashanth
On Error Resume Next

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
objStartFolder = "C:\Documents and Settings\"

Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(objStartFolder)
Wscript.Echo objFolder.Path
Set objsub = objFolder.SubFolders
For Each sf in objsub
	desdir=sf.Path & "\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment"
	WScript.Echo desdir
    objfso.CopyFile "F:\Software\deployment.properties",desdir
Next

Open in new window

If you run from command prompt using cscript file.vbs, it will not pop up message to click.

Thanks for the points.
