Hi all,

     Can someone point me in the direction of a tool that can write a batch script?  I'm deploying a program via SCCM, but aside from installing the program, I need to register 3 OCX files and change the target path of the shortcuts that will be dropped on the desktop.  Any ideas?  Please Help.

You can configure the icons ahead of time and just copy them down the the workstation
For the OCX files, regsvr32 /s filename should work
 Here's an example:
copy /y *.inf "C:\windows\downloaded program files"
copy /y *.ocx "C:\windows\downloaded program files"
regsvr32 /s "C:\windows\downloaded program files\pvvercheck_ie.ocx"
regsvr32 /s "C:\windows\downloaded program files\pview.ocx"

Recommend using something like AutoIT www.autoitscript.com, it's free and has a very comprehensive help file with examples etc.. and this could easily be achieved.
Once you've downloaded AutoIT and installed it, just open the help file and search for FileCreateShortcut and also FileGetShortcut, you can also have the commands as aleinss setout above within the script.  99% of my packages have been wrapped with AutoIT, it's basically just like VBScript except it's got a better interface imho.

Cheers
