I need to create System Restore Point before the installation of our application starts. I found some script that does this.
But i m facing some difficulties in doing so in Vista Machines. I believe it is due to permission problem.

Please let me know how to overcome this in Vista?

Here is the VBScript i am using to create System Restore Point:

If WScript.Arguments.Count = 0 Then
Set objShell = CreateObject("Shell.Application")
objShell.ShellExecute "wscript.exe", "D:\SystemRestoreforVista.vbs" & " uac", , "runas", 1
Set IRP = getobject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:Systemrestore")
strDescription = InputBox("Restore point description: ","Installed Application")

MYRP = IRP.createrestorepoint (strDescription, 0, 100)
GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:Systemrestore").CreateRestorePoint "description", 0, 100
End If
