Connect to a network drive within MSI

I’m having trouble running the following VBS line from within my MSI.

Set WshNetwork = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Network")

The line works fine when running my VBS outside the MSI, but as soon as I embed the code into my MSI it give me errors.

All I’m trying to do is connect / map to a network share and run an exe from within my MSI.

Can you please help.

Two things:
1. Remove the "wscript." the line should read;
Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
The Wscript reference has been known to cause a failure.

2. Make sure that the action is in Run Immediate prior to "InstallInitialize".

Thanks Robo

That works fine now.
