         *If you have a domain, you would execute your script as logon or logoff script for users in AD pane.

I use
psexec \\machinename -u domain\admin -p passwword -d -f -c batchforremote.cmd

then batchforremote.cmd would include
copy /y \\server\share1 myvbscript.vbs
cscript myvbscript.vbs > myvbscript-results.txt
copy myvbscript-results.txt \\server\share2\%COMPUTERNAME%.txt

as you can see in the batchforremote.cmd file the last file copy uses the embeeded %COMPUTERNAME% when it copies the file to the network.

I think you may also be able to run a WMI script to get what you are looking for, which would work remotely.

Hope this helps,

If it is a command line vb script compiled to an exe, then sure then you would just use file.exe > %computername%.txt adn then copy it to the network.
