Hi,
here a sample script:
' Please adjust to your server name
strServerName = "RAINERJDEV"

' Default variables
defaultInstanceName = "MSSQLSERVER"
strMsg = "Installed instances on " & strServerName & ":" & vbcrlf
Const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002

' Now start by reading reg key
Set objRegistry = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strServerName & "\root\default:StdRegProv")
strMSSQLRootKeyPath = "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server"
strInstanceKey = "InstalledInstances"
objRegistry.GetMultiStringValue HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, strMSSQLRootKeyPath, strInstanceKey,arrOfInstances
If IsNull(arrOfInstances) = false Then 
	' We have a SQL Server
	For Each strRegValue In arrOfInstances
		If UCase(strRegValue) <> defaultInstanceName Then 
			strSQLInstanceName = strServerName & "\" & strRegValue
		Else
			strSQLInstanceName = strServerName
		End If
		strMsg = strMsg & strSQLInstanceName & vbcrlf
	Next
Else
	strMsg = strMsg & "No SQL Server installed!"
End If
Set objRegistry = Nothing
Msgbox strMsg

Open in new window


Displays all instances (or if default instance the machine name) on that machine.
You just have to ensure that you have proper permissions to access and read the remote registry.
