Create tool to trouble-shoot in-house app

Greetings to the best Experts on the web.

Here is what I am trying to accomplish.  There is an app that was written by the state that is used at various satellite offices (like this one) and getting support for it can be difficult.  So, after working with the app for several years, I've found the cause for a lot of the errors and a simple batch script could help the field techs trouble-shoot and resolve the issues.

The batch script should do the following:
1. When I launch the script from my pc, the script will prompt for the name of the computer to run on
2. I have a list of files that "should" be on the computer.  I would like to put the files that should be on that computer into this script so it can be easily checked.  Each file should be checked and if the file is on that computer, it will echo "File1.ini detected" or "File1.ini NOT detected" to a log file

Many of the service calls from the end-user is a result of missing files in the particular directory.  This tool should identify which files are there and not there.  

Thanks for your help!

you can use vbscript


Option Explicit
DIM strFilePath 
DIM strComputer 
DIM fso    
DIM filesArray
DIM i

strComputer = InputBox( "Enter Computer Name" )
strFilePath = "\\" & strComputer & "\C$\MyPathe\" 
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

filesArray= Array("file1.ini","files2.ini","file3,ini")
 For i=0 to ubound(a)
If (fso.FileExists(strFilePath +filesArray(i))) Then
  WScript.Echo("myfile1.ini File detected")
ELSE
  WScript.Echo("myfile1.ini Not File detected")
End If
NEXT

sorry forget to correct
WScript.Echo("myfile1.ini File detected")
to
WScript.Echo(filesArray(i)+  " File detected")
and
WScript.Echo(filesArray(i)+  " File NOT detected")
