need a vbscript to copy a file to c:\windows, access denied error

Hi all,

I need a vbsript to copy a file to c:\windows folder for all Windows XP users
i use this script :

Dim objFSO
Const OverWriteExisting = True
Set objFSO = Createobject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
wsLocation = "C:\windows\saplogon.ini"
objFSO.CopyFile "\\server01\SAPGUI7.20INI\saplogon.ini", wsLocation, OverWriteExisting

but it gave me access denied when running as logon script via GPO

Login script runs with the credentials of the user and is often lacks write rights.

You can use psexec and do a remote copy or use it as a startup script in a computer OU GPO.
This will copy the data only when the system boots.
Depending what the file is that you want to copy, you could change the permissions, but those may get overwritten/reset.

Why not simply use a batch file?

@echo off
cls
copy /y "\\server01\SAPGUI7.20INI\saplogon.ini" "%windir%"
exit

Open in new window

Hi PIExpatriate

the idea behind this task is to copy the saplogon.ini file to all domain users' c:\windows\ using GPO with startup script, that is why we have to use a vbs script , the vbscript will call the bat file, it should be a problem, the problem is the permission to drop a saplogon.ini file into the c:\windows protected folder where i get the access denied error.
i will test it again with startup script and computer GPO.
Thanks!

to update you all,

i got it working now, using my script above,
as Arnold said above, i used it as a startup script in a computer OU GPO, and with that settings, it does have permission to copy file to c:\windows folder
all good now,
many thanks!
