I was helping a friend write some VBscript the other day. I was trying to write a simple copy function and I kept getting permission denied. However I was logged in locally as the administrator so that could not be it.

My code looked something like:

Sub CopyFile(source, destination)
	set filesys=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
	If filesys.FileExists(source) Then
	   filesys.CopyFile source, destination
	End If

End Sub

The Solution is: add “\” add the end of any of your path names like
Dim destinationpath
destinationpath = “C:\” & myfolder & “\”

Hope this helps someone else.
