Open the file as text file. Use the REPLACE command to change.

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile (FILE_LOC, 1)
objTextFile.Close
strData = objTextFile .ReadAll
strData = REPLACE (strData, OLD_VALUE,NEW_VALUE)
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile (FILE_LOC, 2)
objTextFile.Writeline strData
objTextFile.Close
Set objFSO = Nothing

Correction.

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile (FILE_LOC, 1)
strData = objTextFile .ReadAll
objTextFile.Close
strData = REPLACE (strData, OLD_VALUE,NEW_VALUE)
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile (FILE_LOC, 2)
objTextFile.Writeline strData
objTextFile.Close
Set objFSO = Nothing

Why bother? Why not have the VBS do what the BAT is doing?!?

Is it me? Is it? Really?

This file has lot of values written at install time (vendors MSI)
Needed this batch file to be there, vbscript was required to change the values.

so vendors still don't seem to know what to do.. sigh didnt we cover this stuff like 5-6 years ago?

you should probably be using CustomActionData in there somewhere as well. If you want to do it properly anyways .
