WshShell.exec error running vbs script

Running a vbs script on a newly installed Windows 2008 R2 server. The script is running some command to create dfs and user folders. It works on the previous server but i can't figure out what i did to get it to work. I'm not a programmer; I just tweaked the script for my use. Thanks

No joy.

This is the command I'm using to run the script from a batch file.

Above line 416, which is this:
Set oExec = WSHShell.Exec(sCommand)

add this:
WScript.Echo "Executing " & sCommand

and then you'll see what sCommand is trying to run, and we should be able to find out what it is you don't have.

If the script is similar to this:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/ITCG/thread/ffdfcf56-1ae2-4bd0-911d-bb849897afbe

then it looks like the Execute_Capture function runs either DFSUtil, iCacls, or dirquota.

Make sure you have each of these on your server.
