Using VBScript to select current signature for Outlook 2007/2010

Does Outlook 2010 handle signatures differently than it does 2003?

I cannot figure out how to assign a signature to Outlook, using VBScript, in 2007, 2010 versions.

The signature is created in the correct folder, the changes appear in the registry, but still it defies me.

It will replace the existing signature that we have set up (AD Signature) if I run this script with the "strSigVersion = AD Signature" but will not switch to a new one with a different name (ex: "strSigVersion = AD SignatureV1") when the script is run.

What must I do?

(It works in Outlook 2003)

Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strUserName = objShell.ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%username%")
 
If Not objExclude.Exists(strUserName) Then
	'DO STUFF HERE....


'>>>Creates Email Signature

Set objSysInfo = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")
 
strUser = objSysInfo.UserName
Set objUser = GetObject("LDAP://" & strUser)

strAddress = objUser.streetAddress
strCity = objUser.l
strState = objUser.st

strCompany = objUser.Company
strPhone = objUser.telephoneNumber
strTfree = objUser.otherTelephone
