Referencing network folders in vbscript

Last Modified: 2012-06-21
This script will work if I remove the part that references the network folder. The code looks to me like it should work but it does nothing.  No error.  Nothing.  What am I doing wrong?

Option Explicit
Dim file1, file2, fso, shell, objNetwork, curUser

set shell = createobject("wscript.shell")
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
curUser = objNetwork.Username
file1 = "C:\\Temp\\done.txt"
file2 = "S:\\" & curUser & "\\done.txt"

msgbox file2

If fso.FileExists(file1) Then
      msgbox "This file exists."
  If fso.FileExists(file2) Then
      msgbox "This files already exists on the S drive"
            MsgBox("The file does not exist.  Install new client")  
            shell.run "chubbard.bat"
            set file1 = fso.CreateTextFile("C:\\Temp\\done.txt")
            set file2 = fso.CreateTextFile("S:\\" & curUser & "\\done.txt")
  End if
End If
