Changing Message Class on Pub Folder In Exchange 2000

Posted on 2004-08-11
Last Modified: 2008-01-09
I am using the AddScriptSink provided by CDOLIVE developed by Siegfried Weber.

First of all i have no idea at all as to which directory to extract them to

Secondly the 3rd section of instructions specifies the following:

cscript RegEvent.vbs Add "OnSave" ExOleDB.ScriptEventSink.1 "file://./backofficestorage/ folders/yourfolder/ChangeMessageClass" -file C:\ChangeMessageClass.vbs WHERE "DAV:ishidden" = False

i believe this is run in Command Prompt but i am unsure about wich directory i should be in when i initiate it. also it specifies a path to C:\ChangeMessageClass.vbs this has made me question the location of the unzipped files.

Could someone please help, not used any com+ apps B4

If you right click the Addscriptsink.cmd and choose edit (open in notepad) it contains some instructions.

Hope this helps!

Yes i know this, the bits on the question i posted are extracted from that file.

It doesnt include anything about where to extract the files to or if the cscript command is run in Command Prompt

Line from Addscriptsink.cmd-Change to C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Bin before running the below lines

I think this line is telling you to (in a command prompt) go to C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Bin and run the script.

I have tried this but all i get is an error message:
Error Commiting Transaction : -2141913011

This was run in D:\Program Files\exchsrvr\bin

cscript RegEvent.vbs Add "OnSave" ExOleDB.ScriptEventSink.1 "file://./backofficestorage/ folders/Information Technology/junkemailtest/ChangeMessageClass" -file C:\ChangeMessageClass.vbs WHERE "DAV:ishidden" = False
