Hi,

I have the following inside a VBS/VB Script. This code runs in regular environment but when inside a VBS file, it is not running

Option Explicit
MacroExample

Sub MacroExample()

    Set AppVisio = CreateObject("visio.application")
    Dim vsoDoc As Visio.Document

    Set vsoDoc = AppVisio.Documents.Open("\\edcfs2\share2\nathsh\XenApp\Desktop\Drawing1.vsd")

    vsoDoc.ExecuteLine ("PageSel")
    Set vsoDoc = Nothing

End Sub

Open in new window


At the moment I am triggering it with a batch file - this code is tested to run 'hi world' function

 cscript \\edcfs2\share2\nathsh\XenApp\Desktop\Test\Temp\filename.vbs

Open in new window


Any help on resolving/pointing in the right direction is appreciated!
