    function fnGetFolderJ()
    {
        var objShell = new ActiveXObject("shell.application");
        var objFolder2;
        var ssfWINDOWS = 36;
        
        objFolder2 = objShell.NameSpace(ssfWINDOWS);
        if (objFolder2 != null)
        {
            var objFolderItem;
            
            objFolderItem = objFolder2.ParseName("system32");
            if (objFolderItem != null)
            {
                var objFolder;
                
                objFolder = objFolderItem.GetFolder;
                if (objFolder != null)
                {
                    ...
                }
            }
        }
    }
 </script>


VBScript:


<script language="VBScript">
    function fnGetFolderVB()
        dim objShell
        dim bReturn

        set objShell = CreateObject("shell.application")
        if (not objShell is nothing) then
            dim objFolder2
            dim ssfWINDOWS
                
            ssfWINDOWS = 36
            set objFolder2 = objShell.NameSpace(36)
            if (not objFolder2 is nothing) then
                dim objFolderItem
                        
                set objFolderItem = objFolder2.ParseName("system32")
                if (not objFolderItem is nothing) then
                    dim objFolder
                                
                    set objFolder = objFolderItem.GetFolder
                    if (not objFolder is nothing) then
                        'Add code here         
                    end if
                    set objFolder = nothing
                end if
                set objFolderItem = nothing
            end if
            set objFolder2 = nothing
        end if
        set objShell = nothing
    end function
</script>

Private Sub fnGetFolderVB()
    Dim objShell   As Shell
    Dim objFolder2 As Folder2

            Set objFolderItem = objFolder2.ParseName("system32")
                If (Not objFolderItem Is Nothing) Then

                    Set objFolder = objFolderItem.GetFolder
                        If (Not objFolder Is Nothing) Then
