Using WSH Controller

You can save substantial time by running a script that connects to remote computers by name or as part of an Active Directory domain. This month's scripting column explains how.

One way to run scripts remotely is to use the WshController object. This object's function is to give you access to the CreateScript method, which creates an instance of a script on the specified computer.

WshController may be slightly faster than other methods of running scripts remotely. Rather than executing on the host computer and connecting to the remote computer from there, WshController's CreateScript method creates an instance of the script on the remote computer that executes locally.
