Get Current Directory (VBscript)


The below script shows two methods to find the current directory.

‘===Get Current Directory
‘Method 1:
set wshell = createobject(“wscript.shell”)
wscript.echo wshell.currentdirectory

‘Method 2:

Set wshell= CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)
Set objfso = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)

wshell.CurrentDirectory = objfso.GetParentFolderName(Wscript.ScriptFullName)

wscript.echo wshell.CurrentDirectory

    Great article !! Here is another method for your list.

    You could also use: GetAbsolutePathName
    which returns a “String” containing the current directory.

    Dim gstrCurPath
    gstrCurPath = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”).GetAbsolutePathName(“.”)

    WScript.Echo “CurPath=” & gstrCurPath
    WScript.Echo “VarType(CurPath)=” & VarType(gstrCurPath)
