Looking for help with Windows Scripting Host language
As a novice to scripting, I find it hard to believe that I have to learn a
completely a programming language to set up tasks like defrag, remove temp files, rebooting the
machine and adding printers. Are there "canned" scripts to initiate a defrag for a remote desktop
in my domain without spending hours learning a scripting language to perform this task?
The WSH Bazaar
whole slew of useful scripts that you can just run as-is. The MSN Windows Script
group also has tons of useful
things, and the Win32Scripting
site lists a few good ones.
In the long run, though, you may be better off biting the bullet and learning the Windows
Scripting Host language; the initial curve is a bit steep, but once you get the hang of it you can
pretty much do anything.
