Hi Scripting Gurus I've wrote a script to pull the list of services running on a list of servers and export the details to a csv file with the service name service status and service executables file version.


Problem is that some executable paths have some switches and in those scenario script is unable to pull the exe's file version see some samples below. How to pull the file information as well in the script.


C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe -k LocalSystemNetworkRestricted      
C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe -k LocalServiceNetworkRestricted      
C:\Windows\system32\svchost.exe -k AxInstSVGroup      
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager\2010\Password Reset Client Service\PwdMgmtProxy.exe""      
C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Macrovision Shared\FLEXnet Publisher\FNPLicensingService.exe""      







On Error Resume Next
Dim fso, ts
strOutput = "Service_Status.csv"
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set input = fso.OpenTextFile("servers.txt", 1, False)
Set ts = fso.CreateTextFile("Service_Status.csv")
fv = "File Version"
ts.WriteLine """Computer"",""Service Name"",""Service State"",""Executable Path"",""File Version"""

While Not input.AtEndOfStream
	strComputer = input.ReadLine
	Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colRunningServices = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service")

For Each objService in colRunningServices 
	    ts.WriteLine """" & strComputer & """,""" & objService.DisplayName & """,""" & objService.State & """,""" & objService.PathName & """,""" & objFSO.GetFileVersion(objService.PathName) & """"
If Err.Number <>0  Then 
	    ts.WriteLine """" & strComputer & """,""" & objService.DisplayName & """,""" & objService.State & """,""" & objService.PathName & """"
	    Err.Clear
	    End If 
	Next  
Wend

input.Close
ts.Close
Set ts = Nothing
Set fso = Nothing


MsgBox "Done. Please see " & strOutput

Give this a try.  I think the only thing you can key off of to find the end of the program name is the ".exe".

On Error Resume Next
strOutput = "Service_Status.csv"
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set input = fso.OpenTextFile("servers.txt", 1, False)
Set ts = fso.CreateTextFile("Service_Status.csv")
fv = "File Version"
ts.WriteLine """Computer"",""Service Name"",""Service State"",""Executable Path"",""File Version"""

While Not input.AtEndOfStream
    strComputer = input.ReadLine
    Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
        & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

    Set colRunningServices = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Service")

    for Each objService in colRunningServices 
        PathName = GetPathName(objService.PathName)
        ts.WriteLine """" & strComputer & """,""" & objService.DisplayName & """,""" & objService.State & """,""" & PathName & """,""" & objFSO.GetFileVersion(PathName) & """"
        If Err.Number <> 0  Then 
            ts.WriteLine """" & strComputer & """,""" & objService.DisplayName & """,""" & objService.State & """,""" & PathName & """"
            Err.Clear
        End If 
    Next  
Wend

input.Close
ts.Close
Set ts = Nothing
Set fso = Nothing

MsgBox "Done. Please see " & strOutput

Function GetPathName(s)
    i = InStr(LCase(s), ".exe")
    If i > 0 Then GetPathname = Replace(Left(s, i+3), """", "")
End Function
