I was wondering if people have a general list of scripting resources for Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2.

I've been able to hash scripts together to get them to work for what I need but I want to learn more about it.

I'd appreciate any good online resources or book recommendations for a novice/beginner. I'm interested in VB and PowerShell mostly as I've ran and made batch files for years.

Thanks in advance!

should Powershell be my focus?

I was also looking for a resource for this issue.

Thanks Cap!

I was looking more for a "oh yeah this book/online link is the best resource ever". I have some Google books/links saved and was going through them, but I figured I'd ask the experts :)

So if Powershell is such a hog, would my time be better spent learning and getting familiar with VB first? Or as we're moving to Windows 7 in less than 6 months, should Powershell be my focus?

Thanks for the info!

There'a a sticky here with some VBScript resources in there:

and there are lots of Powershell resources out there too - Google brings back a whole host of them:

etc etc....  Though I must admit, I've been writing VBScripts, VB/C#.Net for a while, and Powershell still takes some getting used to.....[:)]
