I need this program to check if something doesn't exist, then copy itself to that location, The copy part works fine, but I keep getting an error on launch: Object required "

Option Explicit

Dim objShell, strCmd, strTargetFolder, objFSO, strFile, strDirectory

'Copy to startup section =====
strDirectory = "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"

strFile = strDirectory & "\wippre-alpha.vbs"

If Not objFSO.FileExists(strFile) Then

strTargetFolder = "C:\Users\Arion\Documents\Environment\Test"

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

strCmd = "%comspec% /c copy """ & WScript.ScriptFullName & """ """ & strTargetFolder & """ /Y"
objShell.Run strCmd
End if
