Need VBScript to monitor a 64 bit process and take action when the process closes

I have been using a VBScript to launch a special 32 bit application, then monitor it's process to see when it closes, then log the user off automatically.  But now I need to modify this to run on W2K3 x64 (and the process is also 64 bit now).  Can someone help me modify the below portion of a script so that it would work on W2K3 x64, and when MyProgram.EXE is also 64 bit?

(This was the VBScript for 32 bit version of the program)
'Connect to wmi
'set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:root\cimv2")
Do
 found = false
'List the processes
strQuery = "Select * from win32_process where name='MyProgram.EXE'"
set colProcesses = objWMIService.ExecQuery(strQuery)
 
for each proc in colProcesses
 
   ' Get the reference class linking processes to sessions to get the session object path
   strQuery = "References of {win32_process.handle='" & proc.handle & "'} where ResultClass=Win32_SessionProcess"
   set colSessionReferences = objWMIService.ExecQuery(strQuery)
 
   for each oSessionReference in colSessionReferences
      'Get associators of the session object that are user accounts (linked by win32_loggedonuser)
      strQuery = "Associators of {" & oSessionReference.antecedent & "} where AssocClass=win32_LoggedOnUser"
      set colUsers = objWMIService.ExecQuery(strQuery,,48)
         for each user in colUsers
         if user.name = MUser then found = true
      next
   next
next
Loop While found = true
 
'Run the Windows 2003 logoff utility
wshShell.Run "c:\windows\system32\shutdown.exe -l -f"

The script should be fine... it works in my x64 Win7...

You must check if your wscript or cscript are running in 32bit or 64bit. Use task manager to check those processes. If there is a *32 in front of them then you're on 32 bit.
The 32 bit versions are stored in C:\Windows\SysWOW64 and the 64 bit ones should be on System32
