Where can I find a VB script to check if a file exists on a remote machine, I check the MS script center but it's a bit of a maze these days.

The easiest way is to use the FileExists method of the FileSystemObject object:

strComputer = "mypc001"
strDrive = "C"
strPathAndFile = "\windows\system32\shell32.dll"

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strCompleteFile = "\\" & strComputer & "\" & strDrive & "$" & strPathAndFile

wscript.echo "Looking for the following file: " & VBCRLF & strCompleteFile
If objFSO.FileExists(strCompleteFile) Then
msgbox "The below file does exist:" & VBCRLF & strCompleteFile
Else
msgbox "The file does not exist: " & VBCRLF & strCompleteFile
End If

Why not use Wise's Check if File or Dir exists action?

...just use a UNC name: \\MyTargetPC\MyShare[$]\Myfile.bla
