I am trying to map network drive using the following vb script file on windows 2003 R2 but when user logging in, an error throws that

Object required: NameSpace(...)
Line 14
vbscript runtime error

the code:
Dim objNetwork, strDrive, objShell, objUNC
Dim strRemotePath, strDriveLetter, strNewName

strDriverLetter = "W:"
strRemotePath = "\\home\Home share$"
strNewName = "myFolder"

Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive strDriveLetter, strRemotePath

'Section which actually (re)names the Mapped Drive

Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
objShell.NameSpace(strDriveLetter).Self.Name = strNewName

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strDesktop = WshShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop")
Set oShellLink = WshShell.CreateShortCut(strDesktop & "\myFolder.lnk")
oShellLink.TargetPath = WScript.ScriptFullName
oShellLink.WindowsStyle = 1
oShellLink.TargetPath = "W:\"
oShellLink.WorkingDirectory = "w:\"
oShellLink.Save

WScript.Quit

Please help me to fix the error.

thanks

Can you check if the drive has been mapped successfully?

the error was typo. strDriveLetter not strDriverLetter, so it was not mapped.

Thanks
