I am looking for some help in a script.  We have folder on our server for our users home directory.  
There is a file in each one called config.xml.  I need to mass edit some lines.  I found this and it works but I can't figure out how to search for every instance of the file in all sub folders in the share.
Const ForReading = 1
Const ForWriting = 2

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\config.xml", ForReading)

strText = objFile.ReadAll
objFile.Close
strNewText = Replace(strText, "<PromptOnShutDown>1</PromptOnShutDown>", "<PromptOnShutDown>0</PromptOnShutDown>")

Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\config.xml", ForWriting)
objFile.WriteLine strNewText
objFile.Close

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\config.xml", ForReading)

strText = objFile.ReadAll
objFile.Close
strNewText = Replace(strText, "<PurgeOnShutDown>1</PurgeOnShutDown>", "<PurgeOnShutDown>0</PurgeOnShutDown>")

Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\config.xml", ForWriting)
objFile.WriteLine strNewText
objFile.Close

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\config.xml", ForReading)

strText = objFile.ReadAll
objFile.Close
strNewText = Replace(strText, "<CompactOnShutDown>1</CompactOnShutDown>", "<CompactOnShutDown>0</CompactOnShutDown>")

Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile("C:\config.xml", ForWriting)
objFile.WriteLine strNewText
objFile.Close

Open in new window


This will only search a specific location.  I would need it to search the folder, find the file, edit these line, and then move to the next one and repeat.

Thanks for any help!

try this

Const ForWriting = 2

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
strPath = "\\server\share"  'you can use any path you want, UNC or local
Recurse(strPath)
'End


Function Recurse(strPath)
	Set oFolder = objFSO.GetFolder(strPath)
	Set oSubFolders = oFolder.SubFolders
	Set oFiles = oFolder.Files
	
	For Each oFile In oFiles
		If oFile.Name = "config.xml" Then
			UpdateConfig(oFile.Path)
		End If
	Next
	
	For Each oSubFolder In oSubFolders
		Recurse(oSubfolder.Path)
	Next
End Function


Function UpdateConfig(strFile)
	Set objFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strfile, ForWriting)
	strText = objFile.ReadAll
	strNewText = Replace(strText, "<PromptOnShutDown>1</PromptOnShutDown>", "<PromptOnShutDown>0</PromptOnShutDown>")
	objFile.Write strNewText
	objFile.Close
End function
