Verify/Delete multiple drive and printer mapping in VBScript

I'm in the process of configuring my first VBScript and reached an area in which I can map/verify a single drive and printer mapping.  However i now need to perform the same function using multiple drive and printer mappings.  any assist appreciated... 24hrs into vb scripting 101 ;)

see below for an excerpt of what i was able to put together using various samples...


' Start of Script

'Initialize variables
Option Explicit
Dim strDriveLetter1, strRemotePath1; strPrinter
Dim objNetwork, objShell
Dim CheckDrive, AlreadyConnected, intDrive

' Set variables.
strDriveLetter1 = "P:"
strRemotePath1 = "\\FileServer1\FilePath1"
strPrinter1 = "\\PrintServer1\Printer1"

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set CheckDrive = objNetwork.EnumNetworkDrives()

' Compare drive mappings
On Error Resume Next
AlreadyConnected = False
For intDrive = 0 To CheckDrive.Count - 1 Step 2
If CheckDrive.Item(intDrive) =strDriveLetter1 _
Then AlreadyConnected =True
Next

' Check drive mappings and see if the drive is already mapped.
' If yes then disconnects
If AlreadyConnected = True then
objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strDriveLetter1
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive strDriveLetter1, strRemotePath1

' Verify drive mappings
objShell.PopUp "Drive " & strDriveLetter1 & _
"Disconnected, then connected successfully."
Else
objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive strDriveLetter1, strRemotePath1
objShell.PopUp "Drive " & strDriveLetter1 & _
" connected successfully." End if

' Map network printers
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
objNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection strPrinter

WScript.Quit

' End of Script

Hi, there's a few different ways of doing such a thing, and there's a lot of examples on EE.  Here's one version that maps multiple network drives, based on the details placed in arrDrives

You can apply the same array based technique for printers too....

Regards,

Rob.
Option Explicit
Dim objNetwork, objShell
'
'Dim Remove Drive
Dim bForce, bUpdateProfile
'
'Dim arrDrives for drives and shares
Dim arrDrives, strDriveDetails, strDrive, strShare
'
'Declare Remove Drive
bForce = "True"
bUpdateProfile = "True"
'
 
Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network") 
 
'Declare drive array, separated by the tilde (~) to it's share
arrDrives = Array(_
      "X:~\\server1\itsoftware", _
      "G:~\\server2\it", _
      "Z:~\\server1\allstaffshare", _
      "Y:~\\server2\" & objNetwork.UserName & "$"
 
 
'On Error Resume Next
' Section to map the network drive
'
'--------------------Main------------------------------------
 
For Each strDriveDetails In arrDrives
      strDrive = Split(strDriveDetails, "~")(0)
      strShare = Split(strDriveDetails, "~")(1)
      
      ' Removes strDriveLetter, with bForce, pUpdate Profile
      'On Error Resume Next
      objNetwork.RemoveNetworkDrive strDrive, bforce, bUpdateProfile
 
      ' Map the drive
      objNetwork.MapNetworkDrive strDrive, strShare, bUpdateProfile
Next
'
WScript.Quit
