Request input on a VB script

I have a script which I want to run from the Send To menu command. It is designed to cause the OS (Windows XP) to create a Restore Point, then pass the executable (MSI or EXE, usually) for processing.

My end-aim is to have a Send To method to right-click on a install application, create a restore point and then begin application installation. However, I seem to be missing something in passing the "installer" for execution.


Set IRP = getobject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:Systemrestore")
strDescription = InputBox("Restore point description: ","Installation Restore Point")
MYRP = IRP.createrestorepoint (strDescription, 0, 100)
WShell.Run(Args.Item(0))

Hi johndarby, intresting question youve got.
Im not sure I completely follow you though.
The problem is in adding to SendTo, or in running the installer?

The installer doesn't run after the ASR backup completes. Intuitively, it seems this should work, but, who knows?
