I am pulling all hair out at the moment over something that I feel should be simple! I have created a VBScript to copy a folder from a network share to local disk C: (which has been successful) but am having difficulty trying to run a batch file which is inside that folder. I can run the batch file if I double click it but no matter what methods I have tried (Set ObjShell.run or run = 'filename') etc. It just will not work!
