Scripting Question

vbscript in WIndows 7 64 bit machine

03/04/2015 2812 views
I use the following script to make sure the error is not given while running a SCCM program. I am not able to use in a 64 bit machine. test.cmd has the command to execute the program.Can someone help ?

Dim WshShell, UIv
Set WshShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
On Error Resume Next

UIv = "test.cmd"

WshShell.Run UIv,1,True

If (Err.Number = 0) OR (Err.Number = 1605) Then
End If
Set WshShell = Nothing

Hi ninjaguy,

it´s working but better change the object declaration to

Set WshShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

but why do you put the command to execute the program in a command file and not in this vbs too.

WshShell.Run "%COMSPEC% /k ipconfig /all", 0, True

I can't be sure but this might be for the same reason which causes scripts to fail to run "inside" MSIs, viz. that the environment doesn't "know" what Windows Scripting Host is. Try changing this:

Set WshShell = Wscript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

to this:

Set WshShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

For forum etiquette, please apply the 'Code' style to your code fragment, as I have done here.
