Set objContainer = GetObject _


strGpLink = objContainer.Get("gPLink")

intGpOptions = objContainer.Get("gPOptions")

If strGpLink <> " " Then

    arrGpLinkItems = Split(strGpLink,"]")

    For i = UBound(arrGPLinkItems) to LBound(arrGpLinkItems) + 1 Step -1

        arrGPLink = Split(arrGpLinkItems(i-1),";")

        strDNGPLink = Mid(arrGPLink(0),9)

        WScript.Echo GetGPOName

        Select Case arrGPLink(1)

        Case 0

            WScript.Echo "No Override is cleared and the GPO is enabled."

        Case 1

            WScript.Echo "No Override is cleared and the GPO is disabled."

        Case 2

            WScript.Echo "No Override is checked and the GPO is disabled."

      End Select


    WScript.Echo VbCrLf
