I am looking for a VBScript which checks if the installed OS is genuine or not. Is there anyway to check programmatically?

AFAIK, there's no easy scripting interface to the API but you might be able to use DynaWrap to link to the DLL and function call. Alternatively, you could build your own script-friendly interface to the DLL.

Thanks. I used the "LegitCheckControl.DLL" to check the genuiness.

Dim objGen As New LegitCheckControlLib.LegitCheck
If objGen.IsAlreadyGenuine = True then
msgbox "This is a Genuinen windows version."
msgbox "This is NOT a Genuinen windows version."
End If

would this vbscript work built in to windows? Try it from a command prompt first.

cscript %WINDIR%\System32\slmgr.vbs /dli

Maybe you can open her up and find some specific code in there that will help ya.
