problem with setting path via objSysEnv

problem with setting path via objSysEnv


Just looking for assistance with a line I am thinking is coded wrong. Probably don't need to see all of this, but setup.exe is not being found via the statement in red. Any ideas why the path is failing to be set correctly? And yes, I did verify the folder does exist.


'Define Constants
CONST TempFolder = "c:\windows\Dell\Kace\"
CONST LogFolderName = "Office2010"
CONST OverwriteExisting = True

'Set variables
Dim objFSO : Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Dim objShell : Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Dim objSysEnv : Set objSysEnv = objShell.Environment("SYSTEM")

'Prep work prior to uninstalling Microsoft Office Standard 2010
objSysEnv("PATH") = objSysEnv("PATH") & ";C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\OFFICE14\Office Setup Controller\"
If objFSO.FileExists("C:\ProgramData\Dell\KACE\downloads\17441\config_uninstall.xml") Then
objFSO.CopyFile "C:\ProgramData\Dell\KACE\downloads\17441\config_uninstall.xml", "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\OFFICE14\Office Setup Controller\", OverwriteExisting
End If

RE: problem with setting path via objSysEnv

This page is my go to reference for VBScript and environment variables.
