How to Avoid Hard coding of Paths in QTP Tests

We should avoid hard coding of paths in tests as this adds to portability of test from one machine other.
Consider an action having following statement –
Execute File (D:\GSB\QTP\fucntion\test.vbs)
When tests are ported on a different machine then there is no guaranteed about drive mapping being same.
To over come this, we can read path run time instead of hard coding it; as following -



Make sure assignment of Global is first action as only then Run Time Env file would be available for usage.
