Ok this is my problum I'm creating a menu for a cd\dvd im going to burn well im trying to copy a file from the cd\dvd to the desktop but i need a username befor the desktop folder somthing like this

FileCopy "programfolder\folder\file.exe", "%Username%\Desktop\file.exe"

I already know from experience that you need somthing else to do this and also I know that in win 2000
the directory is different from win xp so i need a command for that as well so looking for ideas...

I've made this code . Put this code in the command button

Dim source As String
Dim path As String
Dim target As String

source = "programfolder\folder\file.exe" ' the source of file to copied
path = Environ("homedrive") ' determine the windows drive
target = Environ("homepath") ' determine the documents and settings folder

FileCopy (source), (path & target & "\Desktop\file.exe")
