    WScript.Arguments aren't working 100% of the time : HTML + VBScript

    Hello all,
    This is my first post. I have looked through a number of posts but haven't found anything like my issue. I'm still fairly new to the vbscript world so any help is GREATLY appreciated.

    I am trying to pass a value in from an HTML file (code below). For some reason still unknown to me the Args(0) works when I am using the FSO.CreateTextFile(Args(0) & "mytext.txt", True) command but doesn't work for FSO.CopyFile Args(0), "C:\temp\myfolder\". My goal is to pass in a whole file path "C:\something\mytextfile.txt" from the HTML file and then copy the file off to another folder using vbscript.

    I have tried to see the value of Args(0) using msgboxs and printing it out to a cmd window but it appears as nothing. I am at my wits end and ready to jump off the bridge. Please can someone explain to me what I'm doing wrong? What do I need to do to pass in an argument that has the filepath?

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you,

    I have a vbs file:
    Option Explicit
    Dim FSO, Args, tsOut

    Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set Args = WScript.Arguments
    Set tsOut = FSO.CreateTextFile(Args(0) & "mytext.txt", True)
    tsOut.WriteLine CStr(Now)
    tsOut.Close

    FSO.CopyFile(Args(0) & "mytext.txt, "C:\Users\cstriefel\Desktop\Test\Test2\")

    MsgBox Args(0), vbOkOnly, WScript.ScriptName

    Set tsOut = Nothing
    Set Args = Nothing
    Set FSO = Nothing

    And an HTML file:
    <html>
    <head>
    <script language=vbscript>
    Option Explicit
    Dim WSHShell
    Dim Path

    Sub SetPath()
    Dim PathParts, X

    PathParts = Split(Mid(window.location.pathname, 2), "%")
    For X = 1 To UBound(PathParts)
    PathParts(X) = _
    Chr(CInt("&H" & Left(PathParts(X), 2))) _
    & Mid(PathParts(X), 3)
    Next
    Path = Join(PathParts, "")
    Path = Left(Path, InStrRev(Path, "\"))
    End Sub

    Sub btnWScript_onclick()
    'Run: wscript "{path}test2.vbs" "{path}"
    WSHShell.Run _
    "wscript """ & Path & "test2.vbs"" """ & Path2 & """"
    window.status = "Script has been run via WScript"
    End Sub

    Sub window_onload()
    Set WSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    SetPath
    End Sub

    Sub window_onunload()
    Set WSHShell = Nothing
    End Sub
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <input type=button id=btnWScript value="Use WScript">
    </body>
    </html>

    What happens when you fire SETPATH()? My thought is that your PATH variable is not getting set correctly.
    Everything that has a computer in will fail. Everything in your life, from a watch to a car to, you know, a radio, to an iPhone, it will fail if it has a computer in it. They should kill the people who made those things.- 'Woz'
