Script to run Outlooke.exe /importnk2

We recently upgraded our version of Office to 2010.  I need to write a script that my end users can click on to import the nk2 files into the new Outlook 2010 format.

The reason for a script is we are in a Xenapp environment and I don't want my users to have to access a command prompt on their own.

Would something like this do you? Straight forward enough - I haven't tried it in a server environment, but appears fine on a Windows 7 PC.

set objShell = CreateObject ("WScript.Shell")
objShell.Run "outlook /importNK2"

Open in new window

Just save it as a VBS and create the relevant shortcut!

Hopefully this helps!

My office is located at D:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office14

How do I make the script know that.

Sorry I am not great at scripting.

Right now when I run the above cmd I get a run window open.

I didn't realize I needed to put the vbs in each Office directory on each server.  But once I did that it worked like a charm thanks.
