Can someone tell me whats up with this code, please?  Everytime I try to debug this it says that line 4 has a error and the error description is "Object required (WScript) - Sleep

Dim sh
Set sh = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.shell")
sh.Run "runas /user:local administrator ""manage1.msc"""
WScript.Sleep(5000)
sh.SendKeys "password~"
WScript.Quit

This works for me, at least, without the third line, but the sleep call works on XP. I don't suppose it could be as simple as getting rid of the brackets? So, WScript.Sleep 5000. Also, I take it you are running this as a .vbs file?

Yes, I am using this as a .vbs file.  I tried to run the script without the brackets also.

Does WScript.sleep(5000) work if you just run it on its own in a script? I don't really know what the problem is, but I guess if you eliminate the possibilities. It may be that the interpreter is being thrown by something being wrong in the previous line of script.
