I need to change a entry in file. So looking to create a script.

I have created a script, which work fine it is as below:

Dim oFS    : Set oFS = CreateObject( "Scripting.FileSystemObject" )
Dim sFSpec : sFSpec  = "C:\1\ie7uinit.inf"
Dim sFnd   : sFnd    = "autoproxy="
Dim sRpl   : sRpl    = "autoproxy=http://testing"

Dim sText
' read
sText= oFS.OpenTextFile( sFSpec ).ReadAll


' change
sText = Replace( sText, sFnd, sRpl )


' save
oFS.CreateTextFile( sFSpec, True ).Write sText

msgbox "done"

Set oFS = Nothing

Wscript.quit

Set oFS = Nothing

Wscript.quit


The above script is making changes in file saved in c:\1\ie7unit.inf
However in ie7unit.inf there is an entry as below:

cachelimit=00005000
autoproxy="http://proxy.address

Prob is there is double quotes in start of autoproxy, so when i change my script & add " it doesnt work since it understand as paramater.
Please assist.

You can try replacing with chr(34) where double quotes are required...

Example chr(34)&"autoproxy="&chr(34)
