VBS - Detect OS and Rewrite Reg Key value

Hi,

I need help to create a VBS script that will detect my OS and write the following reg key:

if W7:
REG ADD "HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\SMS\Client\Client Components\Remote Control" /v Enabled /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Else REG ADD "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SMS\Client\Client Components\Remote Control" /v Enabled /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

good in batch file, but in VBS, i need your help.

My VB is really rusty and I would have suggested powershell for this (but here goes)


strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\"  & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem",,48)

For Each objItem in colItems
osname = objItem.Caption

if inStr(osname, "Microsoft Windows 7") then
wshShell.RegWrite "HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\SMS\Client\Client Components\Remote Control\Enabled" "1", "REG_DWORD"

else
wshShell.RegWrite "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SMS\Client\Client Components\Remote Control\Enabled" "1", "REG_DWORD"
end if 
Next

Hi Becraig,


I agree with you, but since we still have more then 20k pc with XP, vbs is still the solution for now.  Let me try your vbs monday and i'll get back to you.

Thanks for the command lines.
