VBS run dos command problem

Hi.

srvinfo.exe is a W2K Resource Kit program that will list all sorts of information about local and remote computers. I cannot get the below VBS to work. It is supposed to open a dos prompt, run a command, write the results to a file, then close the dos prompt. Any suggestions?

--------------------------
Option Explicit
Dim fso, ts, strComputer, objShell, iReturn, objCommand
Const ForReading = 1
Set fso = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
' CHANGE THE PATH ON THE NEXT LINE
Set ts = fso.OpenTextFile("C:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop\SDService\serverlist.txt", ForReading)

Do While Not ts.AtEndOfStream
  strComputer = Trim(ts.ReadLine)
Set objCommand = WScript.CreateObject ("srvinfo -nf \\" & strComputer & " > C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\SDService\Results\" & strComputer & ".txt")
Set objShell = wscript.createObject("wscript.shell")
iReturn = objShell.Run ("%comspec% /C objCommand",1,True)
Loop

ts.Close
Set ts = Nothing
Set fso = Nothing
-----------------------------------

Thanks

Hmm-you might try including the full path to srvinfo, and/or preceding that command by
CMD /C srvinfo...

Sorry but this has been solved like:
--------------------------------------------
Option Explicit
Dim fso, ts, strComputer, objShell, objComputer, Service, strSvrList
Const ADS_SERVICE_RUNNING = &H4
Const ForReading = 1

Set fso = WScript.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
' CHANGE THE PATH ON THE NEXT LINE
Set ts = fso.OpenTextFile("C:\Documents and Settings\user\Desktop\SDService\serverlist.txt", ForReading)
Do While Not ts.AtEndOfStream
  strComputer = Trim(ts.ReadLine)

Set objComputer = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer)
strSvrList = "The Service on " & objComputer.ADsPath & " is started: "
For Each Service In objComputer
      If Service.Name = "SDService" then
            If Service.Class = "Service" Then            
                  If Service.Status = ADS_SERVICE_RUNNING then
                        strSvrList = strSvrList & Service.name
                  End If
            End if
      End If
Next
WScript.Echo strSvrList

Loop

ts.Close
Set ts = Nothing
Set fso = Nothing
-------------------------------------------
So I will ask for a PAQ and Refund if that's ok with all?
