                objFolderItem = objFolderItems.Item(objFolderItems.Count - 1);

            }
        }

    function fnFolderItemsItemVB()
        dim objShell
        
        set objShell = CreateObject("shell.application")
        if (not objShell is nothing) then
            dim objFolder
            dim ssfWINDOWS
                
            ssfWINDOWS = 36
            set objFolder = objShell.NameSpace(ssfWINDOWS)
            if (not objFolder is nothing) then
                dim objFolderItems
                        
                set objFolderItems = objFolder.Items()
                if (not objFolderItems is nothing) then
                    dim objFolderItem
                    
                    set objFolderItem = objFolderItems.Item
                        if (not objFolderItem is nothing) then
