Problems with simple FileSystemObjec t code

MDJ
Hi, haven't been on here for a while but used to help out with ASP queries,
hoping for a bit of guidance myself!

I've stripped down the code i'm having trouble with to the following,
basically I just want the code to duplicate a template file, i.e create a
new file from a template, when I run the code below on Windows 2000
Professional (IIS 5) the page never finishes executing and no file is
created, haven't done much with FileSystemObjec t before so don't know what's
going on. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

strTemplate =
Server.MapPath( "..\environment al-health-issues\template .asp")
strNewFile = Server.MapPath( "..\environment al-health-issues\newfile. asp")
Set FSO = Server.CreateOb ject("Scripting .FileSystemObje ct")
Set F1 = FSO.GetFile(str Template)
F1.Copy(strNewF ile)
Set F1 = nothing
Set FSO = nothing
Many Thanks,

Martin

I keep seeing that you can use the FileSystemObject in either VB script, or Javascript on an aspx page. I added a refrence to the scrrun.dll I added importing namespaces for 'System.Object', 'Scripting', 'Scripting.FileSystemObject', and a few others However, when I try to create the fso object I keep receiving an error. 'ActiveX component can't create object: 'Scripting.FileSystemObject'
