Making a vbscript Wscript write to file instead of Echo

Posted on 2013-01-16

I have a vbscript I would like to run in a GPO start up for Asset Management. I currently have it written to pull all the information I want, but in ECHO only.
I would like it to write to a text file or CSV instead, and to overwrite the file each time the computer is rebooted instead of appending to the end of it, in case software or hardware changes.
I also want the file to be the computer name, as I plan to write these files to a network drive folder where they all will be stored so they will need to be unique.

I know there are several Gurus here that can help with this faster than I can search the internet for it.

Here is what I have so far.

Set dtmConvertedDate = CreateObject("WbemScripting.SWbemDateTime")
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colSMBIOS = objWMIService.ExecQuery ("Select * from Win32_SystemEnclosure")
Set oss = objWMIService.ExecQuery ("Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem")
Set colApps = objWMIService.ExecQuery ("Select * from Win32_Product Where Caption Like '%Microsoft Office%'")
Set objAD = CreateObject("ADSystemInfo")

Wscript.Echo "Computer Name: " & objAD.ComputerName
Wscript.Echo "Current User: " & objAD.UserName

For Each objSMBIOS in colSMBIOS
    Wscript.Echo "Serial Number: " & objSMBIOS.SerialNumber  
    Wscript.Echo "Manufacturer: " & objSMBIOS.Manufacturer
Next

For Each os in oss
    Wscript.Echo "Windows Version: " & os.Caption
    dtmConvertedDate.Value = os.InstallDate
    dtmInstallDate = dtmConvertedDate.GetVarDate
    Wscript.Echo "Install Date: " & dtmInstallDate
    Wscript.Echo " OS Serial Number: " & os.SerialNumber
Next

For Each objApp in colApps
    Wscript.Echo objApp.Caption, objApp.Version
Next

Well, I answered my own question.

Here is my final answer / Script.
It gives you Make, Model and Serial number of the PC/Server, IP and MAC Address, Windows OS Version, and Service Pack, Install Date, OS Serial Number (Not Product Number) and Microsoft Office Version (if installed).

Enjoy
