Haven't you seen my email above?
If running as a non-admin user you need to use:
put "~" & specialfolderpath("asup") into tPath.
The return value from specialFolderPath("asup") is the system wide support
folder which the normal user can't write to. You need the user folder which
you will get by prepending a tilde.
