Error "cscript exited with error code 0" when running vbscript from batch
Posted on 2009-04-03
I am trying to create a batch that closes outlook "correctly" on client machines from the server. I know killing outlook would be easy enough, but i don't want outlook scanning files every morning when my users open it up because it was not closed properly.
I found a vbscript that closes outlook, and I am now trying to execute it from a batch. I am currently testing on 2 XP machines, to determine if this is going to work. So far, no luck.
Here is the script that closes outlook:
On Error Resume Next
Set Outlook = GetObject(, "Outlook.Application")
If Err = 0 Then
When I execute this locally, it works fine.
Here is the test batch that I have created to run remotely:
psexec \\station1812 cscript "c:\test\testscript.vbs"
When I run this from a remote computer I get the following error "cscript exited with error code 0"
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
