Hi,

I run Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer against a few hundered machine in my company. I need a way to import the results into excel or access . I saw someone posted they have  vb script that can do it but you need VB to compile it, I dont have VB nor know how to compile it.
I need to be able to make sense of the results of these scans.

Please help

Zach

You can get Visual Basic Express 2008 for free here:

Compiling it is not difficult with a little trial and error.

You could post a question in the vb.net zone if you need more help with it.

For what it's worth, VBScript is not the best way to go about parsing and exporting those logs to Access.  If that .net app is solid, then I'm sure it'll save you some headaches.
