Why is 'the operation completed successfully' an error message?
I still don't get the logic behind this error message. When using the file system object or wscript shell, you may have come across this error:
Despite the "success" indicated by the text of the error message, this usually indicates that there was a permissions problem accessing a file or folder with Scripting.FileSystemObject or Wscript.Shell. If the former, make sure that IUSR_<machine> has appropriate privileges on scrrun.dll (found in your windows\system32 folder) and also whatever resource you are attempting to access. If the latter, make sure IUSR_<machine> has appropriate privileges on the wshom.ocx file (also in your system32 folder).
Also, make sure you are pointing to a valid file or folder!
