Scripting Special Folders

Provided here you will find a VBS script example of how to enumerate local machines specified special folder content. To make the script more robust I have added all of the available Special Folder Constants (Const) so that the script can be modified and reused.The script below will list the contents of the DESKTOP special folder. To use any of the Constants in the list copy and paste the special folder you want to use and substitute the DESKTOP Constant name in the Namespace line with any of the Const values contained in the script as in the examples here: Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace(LOCAL_SETTINGS_HISTORY) Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace(MY_PICTURES)Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace(MY_RECENT_DOCUMENTS)VBS Script:Const LOCAL_SETTINGS_HISTORY = &H22&Const MY_PICTURES = &H27&Const MY_RECENT_DOCUMENTS = &H8&Const MY_COMPUTER = &H11&Const NETHOOD = &H13&Const PROGRAMS = &H2&Const PROGRAM_FILES = &H26&Const RECYCLE_BIN = &Ha&Const SYSTEM32 = &H25&Const STARTUP = &H7&Const START_MENU = &Hb&Const ADMINISTRATIVE_TOOLS = &H2f&Const ALL_USERS_APPLICATION_DATA = &H23&Const ALL_USERS_DESKTOP = &H19&Const ALL_USERS_PROGRAMS = &H17&Const ALL_USERS_START_MENU = &H16&Const ALL_USERS_STARTUP = &H18&Const APPLICATION_DATA = &H1a&Const SENDTO = &H9&Const COMMON_FILES = &H2b&Const CONTROL_PANEL = &H3&Const DESKTOP = &H10&Const FONTS = &H14&Const COOKIES = &H21&Const FAVORITES = &H6&Const LOCAL_APPLICATION_DATA = &H1c&Const MY_NETWORK_PLACES = &H12&Const MY_DOCUMENTS = &H5&Const MY_MUSIC = &Hd&Const NETWORK_CONNECTIONS = &H31&Const PRINTERS_AND_FAXES = &H4&Const PRINTHOOD = &H1b&Const MY_VIDEOS = &He&Const TEMPLATES = &H15&Const TEMPORARY_INTERNET_FILES = &H20&Const USER_PROFILE = &H28&Const WINDOWS = &H24&Const INTERNET_EXPLORER = &H1&Set objShell = CreateObject(“Shell.Application”)Set objFolder = objShell.Namespace(DESKTOP)Set colItems = objFolder.ItemsFor Each objItem in colItemsMsgBox objItem.NameNext

VBS Script To Rebuild The WMI Repository On A Local Machine

This VBS Script will automate the process of rebuilding a corrupted or suspect WMI Repository on a local machine. The script here can possibly be modified to do so on a remote machine as well however it is not advisable to do so. The message boxes can also be commented out if you do not want the information displayed. You can also add Wscript.Sleep 1000 or set it even higher to 5000 after the Next commands to give the Service Stop and Start commands time to complete if you have issues with the service handlers. Note: I chose not to use the %WinDir% variable and hard coded the C:WindowsSystem32WbemRepository folder in part to ensure that the script is executed locally and to contend with any issues such as the script being executed on machines without WMI installed or with an incompatible version installed. Since the Windows directory exists on “Most” Windows XP workstations and Windows 2003 servers this will help ensure that there are no WMI version issues. Tip: You can accomplish the same results as the VBS script that follows from the command line (Command Prompt) as well by using the following procedure however that isn’t much fun for me:Net Stop WinMgmt /yRen %WinDir%System32WbemRepository %WinDir%System32WbemOldRepositoryNet Start WinMgmt /yIt is important to note here that the Repository folder needs to be renamed or deleted so that when the Windows Management Instrumentation (WinMgmt) service is restarted the folder is recreated automatically if it does not exist. You can just delete the Repository FS directory folder as well if needed but it is best to delete the Repository folder and all of the files and subfolders under it. Also note that if you just delete the files in the Repository FS folder they will not be recreated automatically as the service looks for the existence of the Repository or RepositoryFS folder.Since the Windows Management Instrumentation service is always running and starts automatically when the computer is started the Repository folder cannot be deleted unless you stop the Windows Management Instrumentation service. If the service is running and you try to programmatically or manually attempt to delete the folder you will receive an Error Deleting File Or Folder dialog box stating that the files are “Being used by another person or program”. The Repository$WinMgmt.Cfg file can be deleted however the RepositoryFS Btr, Data, Ver and Map files are in use and cannot be deleted or renamed.Note: Before running the VBS script below try to stop and then restart the Windows Management Instrumentation service and see if your issues are resolved.This script was written in part to automate the process that I wrote about in a post entitled WMI Namespace Errors In CCMSetup Log file found below under Additional Information and thanks to Satyanarayana K. I took the time to create and test the script here and post it for the benefit of others.VBS Script:strComputer = “.”objServiceDisplayName = “Windows Management Instrumentation”‘Stop the “Windows Management Instrumentation” service.

VBS Script To Return A Remote Machines Actual Time Zone Name Rather Than Its Offset

The WMI Win32_TimeZone class uses the Bias property to return the operating systems Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) offset which is the difference between Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and local time. However since the Bias property uses the offset from GMT time as -360 minutes or – 420 minutes the time zone conversion will only give you the offset minutes and not the actual time zone as you would expect. To combat this issue I created the script below to help me determine the actual Time Zone name for a specified machine using a Case statement where I calculated the offset minutes and provided the offset with its appropriate Time Zone name to take the guess work out of the conversion. VBS Script:strComputer = InputBox (“Enter Machine Name”)Set objWMIService = GetObject(“winmgmts:” & strComputer & “rootcimv2”)Set colTimeZones = objWMIService.ExecQuery(“Select * From Win32_TimeZone”)For Each objTimeZone in colTimeZonesSelect Case objTimeZone.BiasCase -180 TimeZone = “Atlantic Daylight Time” Case -240 TimeZone = “Atlantic Standard Time”Case -240 TimeZone = “Eastern Daylight Time” Case -300 TimeZone = “Eastern Standard Time”Case -300 TimeZone = “Central Daylight Time”Case -360 TimeZone = “Central Standard Time”Case -360 TimeZone = “Mountain Daylight Time”Case -420 TimeZone = “Mountain Standard Time”Case -420 TimeZone = “Pacific Daylight Time”Case -480 TimeZone = “Pacific Standard Time”Case -480 TimeZone = “Alaska Daylight Time”Case -540 TimeZone = “Alaska Standard Time”Case -540 TimeZone = “Hawaii -Aleutian Daylight Time”Case -600 TimeZone = “Hawaii -Aleutian Standard Time”End SelectMsgBox UCase(strComputer) & ” Is Set To “ & TimeZoneNext

Vbs Script Ping A List Of Machines And Write Results To Excel In Living Color

In my previous Vbs ping scripts that ping a list of machines from a text file: Vbs Script Ping A List Of Machines And Write Results To Excel and the Updated Vbs Script Ping A List Of Machines And Write Results To Excel that pings names from the spreadsheet itself. I have had literally hundreds of responses about them since they were first posted. In many of the responses people have asked for additional modifications. One of the most popular requests was to add color to the results set and the most requested colors were Green for those devices that are reachable and Red for those that are not. However that is where the similarity in the request seems to end. As a result here you will find three scripts that read the machine names from a text file called MachineList.txt. The first script writes the results where the Cell Color is Green or Red the second script colors the Entire Row as appropriate and the final script will simply change the Font Color.Vbs Script Ping A List Of Machines And Write Results To Excelhttp://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/dhite/archive/2006/06/11/21093.aspxUpdated Vbs Script Ping A List Of Machines And Write Results To Excelhttp://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/dhite/archive/2007/04/08/updated-vbs-script-ping-a-list-of-machines-and-write-results-to-excel.aspxCell Color:Set objExcel = CreateObject(“Excel.Application”)objExcel.Visible = TrueobjExcel.Workbooks.AddintRow = 2objExcel.Cells(1, 1).Value = “Machine Name”objExcel.Cells(1, 2).Value = “Results”Set Fso = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)Set InputFile = fso.OpenTextFile(“MachineList.Txt”)Do While Not (InputFile.atEndOfStream)HostName = InputFile.ReadLineSet WshShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)Ping = WshShell.Run(“ping -n 1 “ & HostName, 0, True)objExcel.Cells(intRow, 1).Value = UCase(HostName)Select Case PingCase 0 objExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Value = “On Line”Case 1 objExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Value = “Off Line”End SelectIf objExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Value = “Off Line” ThenobjExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Interior.ColorIndex = 3ElseobjExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Interior.ColorIndex = 4End IfintRow = intRow + 1LoopobjExcel.Range(“A1:B1”).SelectobjExcel.Selection.Interior.ColorIndex = 19objExcel.Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 11objExcel.Selection.Font.Bold = TrueobjExcel.Cells.EntireColumn.AutoFitMsgBox “Done”Entire Row:Set objExcel = CreateObject(“Excel.Application”)objExcel.Visible = TrueobjExcel.Workbooks.AddintRow = 2objExcel.Cells(1, 1).Value = “Machine Name”objExcel.Cells(1, 2).Value = “Results”Set Fso = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)Set InputFile = fso.OpenTextFile(“MachineList.Txt”)Do While Not (InputFile.atEndOfStream)HostName = InputFile.ReadLineSet WshShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)Ping = WshShell.Run(“ping -n 1 “ & HostName, 0, True)objExcel.Cells(intRow, 1).Value = UCase(HostName)Select Case PingCase 0 objExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Value = “On Line”Case 1 objExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Value = “Off Line”End SelectIf objExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Value = “Off Line” ThenobjExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = 3ElseobjExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).EntireRow.Interior.ColorIndex = 4End IfintRow = intRow + 1LoopobjExcel.Range(“A1:B1”).SelectobjExcel.Selection.Interior.ColorIndex = 19objExcel.Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 11objExcel.Selection.Font.Bold = TrueobjExcel.Cells.EntireColumn.AutoFitMsgBox “Done”Font Color:Set objExcel = CreateObject(“Excel.Application”)objExcel.Visible = TrueobjExcel.Workbooks.AddintRow = 2objExcel.Cells(1, 1).Value = “Machine Name”objExcel.Cells(1, 2).Value = “Results”Set Fso = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)Set InputFile = fso.OpenTextFile(“MachineList.Txt”)Do While Not (InputFile.atEndOfStream)HostName = InputFile.ReadLineSet WshShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)Ping = WshShell.Run(“ping -n 1 “ & HostName, 0, True)objExcel.Cells(intRow, 1).Value = UCase(HostName)Select Case PingCase 0 objExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Value = “On Line”Case 1 objExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Value = “Off Line”End SelectIf objExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Value = “Off Line” ThenobjExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Font.ColorIndex = 3ElseobjExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Font.ColorIndex = 4End IfintRow = intRow + 1LoopobjExcel.Range(“A1:B1”).SelectobjExcel.Selection.Interior.ColorIndex = 19objExcel.Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 11objExcel.Selection.Font.Bold = TrueobjExcel.Cells.EntireColumn.AutoFitMsgBox “Done”

Updated VBS Script To Remove The SMS Advanced Client From A Remote Machine

In my previous post entitled VBS Script To Remove The SMS Advanced Client From A Remote Machine I created a VBS script that would allow for you to remove the SMS Advanced Client from a remote machine by entering the machine name into an input dialog box. Recently I was asked to provide some error handling to the script for those machine names that were either entered incorrectly or that were not on line when the script was executed. I added the requested error handing by specifying On Error Resume Next as well as the following to the original script for those who are interested.If Err.Number <> 0 ThenMsgBox “Error: “ & Err.NumberErr.ClearElseVBS Script:strComputer = InputBox(“Enter Machine Name”)strApplicationName = “SMS Advanced Client”On Error Resume NextSet wshShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)Set objWMIService = GetObject(“winmgmts:” & “{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!” & strComputer & “rootcimv2”)If Err.Number <> 0 ThenMsgBox “Error: “ & Err.NumberErr.ClearElseSet colSoftware = objWMIService.ExecQuery (“Select * From Win32_Product where Name = ‘” & strApplicationName & “‘”)For Each objSoftware in colSoftwareIf objSoftware.Name = strApplicationName ThenApplicationFound = TrueMsgBox “Removing The “ & strApplicationName & ” From “ & UCase(strComputer)objSoftware.Uninstall()MsgBox “Done”End IfNextIf ApplicationFound <> True ThenMsgBox strApplicationName & ” Is Not Installed On “ & UCase(strComputer)End IfEnd IfVBS Script To Remove The SMS Advanced Client From A Remote Machinehttp://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/dhite/archive/2007/05/20/vbs-script-to-remove-the-sms-advanced-client-from-a-remote-machine.aspx

Updated Vbs Script Ping A List Of Machines And Write Results To Excel

This VBS script will take a list of machine names from a spreadsheet and determine whether or not the machine is currently on line and if so it will write the IP address for the machine to the current spreadsheet.In a previous post entitled Vbs Script Ping A List Of Machines And Write Results To Excel I have received many on line and off line comments about the script since it was posted. In particular on line I have been asked: “How would I go about editing the script so that it also lists the IP address if the result is On Line?” and “Is it possible to see the final code with the adjustments for the IP address” and offline “Can it be set to use a spreadsheet not a text file with computer names and write it back to the same spreadsheet?” As a result I rewrote the script to use the Network Adapter Configuration WMI class rather than issuing a command Ping and modified it based on my recent post VBS Script To Use An Excel Spreadsheet For Input And Output Function Purposes so that it reads machine names from a spreadsheet as opposed to an input text file. It will also write the IP address for the machine if the machine is on line and will provide you with the machine status (On line or Off line) as in the original post.This script assumes that you have an excel spreadsheet called C:File_Name.xls with machine names listed one per cell beginning at Cell A2 with nothing entered in row 1 as the script will create the headers for you.VBS Script:Set objExcel = CreateObject(“Excel.Application”)objExcel.Visible = TrueintRow = 2Set Fso = CreateObject(“Scripting.FileSystemObject”)Set objWorkbook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open(“C:File_Name.xls”)Set InputFile = objWorkbookDo Until objExcel.Cells(intRow,1).Value = “”strComputer = objExcel.Cells(intRow, 1).ValueobjExcel.Cells(1, 1).Value = “Machine Name”objExcel.Cells(1, 2).Value = “IP Address”objExcel.Cells(1, 3).Value = “Status”On Error Resume NextSet objWMIService = GetObject(“winmgmts:” & strComputer & “rootcimv2”)Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery(“Select * from Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration Where IPEnabled = True”)For Each objItem in colItemsIf Err.Number <> 0 ThenobjExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Value = “”objExcel.Cells(intRow, 3).Value = “Off Line”Err.ClearElseobjExcel.Cells(intRow, 2).Value = objItem.IPAddressobjExcel.Cells(intRow, 3).Value = “On Line”End IfNextintRow = intRow + 1LoopobjExcel.Range(“A1:C1”).SelectobjExcel.Selection.Interior.ColorIndex = 19objExcel.Selection.Font.ColorIndex = 11objExcel.Selection.Font.Bold = TrueobjExcel.Cells.EntireColumn.AutoFitSet objWorkbook = NothingMsgBox “Done”Vbs Script Ping A List Of Machines And Write Results To Excelhttp://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/dhite/archive/2006/06/11/21093.aspxVBS Script To Use An Excel Spreadsheet For Input And Output Function Purposeshttp://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/dhite/archive/2007/04/01/vbs-script-to-use-an-excel-spreadsheet-for-input-and-output-function-purposes.aspx
