Computer Info VBScript

EDIT 9th January 2010 – the script has gone a fairly major revision due to changes in the Office 2010 product key storage location, as well as migrating this to a class-based script for speed.

Again, another side project – a computer info VBScript. I’ve modified it a bit to output information to screen (execute with cscript from a cmd prompt), but this could be modified to do a lot more. This is just a simple script template, and as usual I’m posting here for consumption in the event anyone finds this useful:

Proxy PAC configuration file

Had to work on one of these for a client, and decided that while there’s a whole host of documentation out there, there aren’t a lot of good working examples of how to use the proxy auto config functions properly in a complex file.

Since I spent the better part of 8 hours getting something that works properly in the environment (including site blocking to a custom server), I figured I’d share it with the users of this series of tubes in the hope it helps someone.

Login Scripts?

OK, so I haven’t had a chance to finish up either of the two posts I’ve been working on, so to start I’m merging them into one larger MDT post.  Secondly, however, I’ve also been working with a friend of mine on creating a logon script for his environment that will replace a certain other tool they are using for logon management for their mix of 9x and 2000 workstations.  They’re slowly upgrading their back-end environment in preparation for a migration to Windows 7 on the clients, and they wanted to see if they could move from <product> to logon scripts and group policy (they are going to be using MDT and SCCM for deployment and lifecycle management).  They had to try and completely replace their current solution with group policy and a logon script (or scripts), and this has been accomplished.
