Why would anyone in their right mind use WiseScript for that job, when there are so many examples around in other, more accessible languages?

Find a VBScript which lists all shares. You can then loop through the list, looking for a match to the folder in question. If you need to have an EXE (the only reason I can think of that you would want to use WiseScript) there are innumerable utilities around which will create an EXE from a VBS.

why cant you go for vbscript for the same. here is one example...

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colShares = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Share")
For each objShare in colShares
Wscript.Echo t
if t = "Shared folder caption or name" Then
Wscript.Echo "Given folder is shared"
exit for
End if
