Cannot clear SMS Cache via script??

NBquery asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-21
I am trying to clear out the local SMS client cache on several machines, but the VB script I am using doesnt seem to work.  I created a SMS Advertisement to download the package and run locally.  The script I have is:

on error resume next

dim oUIResManager
dim oCache
dim oCacheElement
dim oCacheElements

set oUIResManager = createobject("UIResource.UIResourceMgr")

if oUIResManager is nothing then
      wscript.echo "Couldn't create Resource Manager - quitting"
end if

set oCache=oUIResManager.GetCacheInfo()

if oCache is nothing then
      set oUIResManager=nothing
      wscript.echo "Couldn't get cache info - quitting"
end if

set oCacheElements=oCache.GetCacheElements

for each oCacheElement in oCacheElements

set oCacheElements=nothing
set oUIResManager=nothing
set oCache=nothing

I save the above in a VB fileclearcache2.vbs and set the CMD to run on the local client as:

cscript.exe clearcache2.vbs

Can anyone see why it might be failing?  This should be pretty easy I thought&..
