The focus of the CRUTO website is no longer scripts and web development. But we realize the usefulness of these scripts and we’ll keep this script archive here for your future reference. Please bookmark this page so you can find your way back. Our home page will no longer link to this archive.
Use a Text File as a Command Line Argument
Demonstration script that allows you to drag a text file (consisting of server names) onto the script icon in Windows Explorer. The script then opens the text file, then retrieves service information from each on the servers in the file.
Const ForReading = 1
Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments
Set objDictionary = CreateObject("Scripting.Dictionary")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(objArgs(0), ForReading)
i = 0
Do While objTextFile.AtEndOfStream <> True
strNextLine = objTextFile.Readline
objDictionary.Add i, strNextLine
i = i + 1
For Each objItem in objDictionary
Set colServices = GetObject("winmgmts://" & objDictionary.Item(objItem) _
& "").ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service")
