You can retreive data directly from RAM via script in Windows, you don't have direct hardware access but through the kernel. If you can get Gates to allow you access please send info.

However if all you are trying to do if flush your DNS cache you can create a script that will do so, if you want it to run on startup you can drop the script into your startup folder or add it to you Run key in the registry under Local Machine.

Would that work?

Why don't you just setup a DNS cache only server, then you wouldn't have to do this. What is your purpose for want to copy the DNS cache to file, I'm just curious ?

You don't have any type of backup solution that saves this file to tape so that you can restore. ? If you need to copy the file somewhere this will do

dim filesys
set filesys=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
If filesys.FileExists("c:\windows\system32\dns\cache.dns") Then
   filesys.CopyFile "c:\sourcefolder\anyfile.html", "c:\destfolder\"
End If

As I explained to you earlier you can not directly access data in RAM.
