In a login script, I need to condition logic to read the conditions of 2 registry values, I have it in Kix but am trying to convert that over to vbscript.

I have this so far:

Dim WSHShell, RegKey, Session, WSHNetwork

Set WSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set WSHNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")

RegKey = "HKCU\Volatile Environment\SESSIONNAME"

Session = WSHShell.RegRead(RegKey & "")
If Session <> "Console" Then
WScript.Quit

Else

That part works fine, but I want it to condition first checking the OS version, if >= 5.1 AND the above to quit

In Kix, it looks like this:

If @DOS >= 5.1 AND ReadValue("Volatile Environment", "SESSIONNAME") <> "Console"
    GoTo "END"
EndIf

dim strComputer
Dim WSHShell, RegKey, Session, WSHNetwork
strComputer = "."

Set WSHShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set WSHNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem",,48)

RegKey = "HKCU\Volatile Environment\SESSIONNAME"
Session = WSHShell.RegRead(RegKey & "")

For Each objItem in colItems
   
if objItem.version  >= 5.1 AND session <> "Console"

WScript.Quit

else

'do what yo want here
 
end if

Oops, sorry, Debug.print should be wscript.Echo

Forget the THEN in the if statement... HEHEHE!

if objItem.version  >= 5.1 AND session <> "Console"  then '<------ forget this

WScript.Quit

else

'do what yo want here

You can use following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\ProductVersion

5.0 = Win2K Server
5.1 = WinXP
5.2 = Win2003

And HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\ProductOptions\ProductSuite = "Terminal Server" for NT4 TSE
