I can no longer run a VBS script on 1 of 8 identical servers.  I have 8 identical servers and I cannot run the Sciript on 1 of them.  I get a Windows Script Host Error Code 80041002.  the sciript is fine as I run it on all identical servers.  I believe WHS might be corrupt how can i repair and reinstall it?

Hi,

I do not think the script is corrupt, but may be some object that call by the script is not available in the machine. You can browse thru the skrip looking for "CreateObject" directive. Take out that portion of code to create new vbs file to create the object and run that vbs file. If it give you error than that object is not install or you do not have permission on that object.

This turns out to be the fix for corrupt script problems.

Rebuilding the WMI Repository
If you experience behavior when using WMI, such as application errors or scripts that used to work are no longer working, you may have a corrupted WMI repository. To fix a corrupted WMI repository, use these steps:
Windows XP and Windows Vista
Click Start, Run and type CMD.EXE
Note: In Windows Vista, you need to open an elevated Command Prompt window. To do so, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
Type this command and press Enter:
net stop winmgmt
Using Windows Explorer, rename the folder %windir%\System32\Wbem\Repository. (For example, %windir%\System32\Wbem\Repository_bad). %windir% represents the path to the Windows directory, which is typically C:\Windows.
Switch to Command Prompt window, and type the following and press ENTER after each line:
net start winmgmt
EXIT
