Hi All,

I have difficulty to make a VBScript to search particular file and retrieve it's size.
I need to make a report for each computer, like this :

Computer A
asdf.dbx 100MB
qwertyu.dbx 200MB

Computer B
nvcvs.dbx 100MB
dsfdsf.dbx 150MB


Thanks

seeings how this is posted in the kbox area I will assume you have a 1000 series, why a VBScript?

I need a special script (VBScript) then distribute that script by KBOX.
Because that script can't be made by scripting in KBOX.

Sorry don't know VBScript. I could do it in AUTOIT or the KBOX though :)

From the manual

Template Log File Information Template This is a template that lists the values returned
from a 'Log File Information' action in a script.
Replace 'AccessedDate: ' with the actual attribute
that you returned.


You couldn't do this in the verify step, but you could do it in on success or remediation steps. I didn't readily see a list of attributes, but shouldn't be hard to do.

As an alternative, could just put it in a kbox batch file to run (do like a dir myfile.txt > c:\temp\data.txt ) and dump it to a text file or something that gets pulled in by the kbox (Look for task 'upload a file').

My preferred solution would be a Autoit script as I can control everything about the script. Autoit is free and its geared a lot more towards system administration.

Thanks lindsamw
My problem is that file stored different in each machine, usually stored at :
C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook Express\file.dbx
I need a script to search only .dbx file under that directory and retrieve it's size.
It' s good if the script can write in registry, so I can use custom inventory field to make report in KBOX reporting module.
