I had this question after viewing vbscript, email results.


I needed some assistance with the output this is generating through email.  strResult only send information on one line of text or echo's like the below.

AllowMaximum:       True
Caption:       Apps$
MaximumAllowed:       
Name:       Apps$
Path:       C:\Apps
Type:       0

How can I get the output to read:
Computer Name:
Name:
Path:

in the email this sends?

I got lots of code from https://wmiscripting.wordpress.com/2007/12/07/view-share-permission/   (and Kimputer)

the Excel workbook reference seems redundant now also

Dim strComputer, strResult
Dim exclusions

If Trim(strComputer) = "" Then strComputer = "."
exclusions = Array("Apps$", "sys$")

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colShares = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_Share WHERE NOT Type=2147483648 AND NOT Type=2147483649 AND NOT Type=2147483650 AND NOT Type=2147483651")


For each objShare in colShares
      If UBound(Filter(exclusions, objShare.Name, True, 1)) < 0 Then
            strResult = strResult + "Computer Name: " & vbTab & strComputer  & vbcrlf &_
                  "Name: " & vbTab & objShare.Name & vbcrlf &_
                  "Path: " & vbTab & objShare.Path & vbcrlf 
			strResult = strResult & "Permissions::"	& vbcrlf 
			strResult = strResult &  GetSharePermissions(objShare.Name) & vbcrlf & vbcrlf			
      End If
Next
wscript.echo "Shares on computer: " & strComputer & vbcrlf & vbcrlf & strResult
'wscript.echo "Done"

Dim objMessage, Rcpt 
'Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
'objExcel.Workbooks.Add

wscript.quit

''' https://wmiscripting.wordpress.com/2007/12/07/view-share-permission/

Function GetSharePermissions(vShareName )
    Set objFolderSecSetting = objWMIService.Get("Win32_LogicalShareSecuritySetting.Name='" & vShareName & "'")
    intRetVal = objFolderSecSetting.GetSecurityDescriptor(objSecDescriptor)
    dim shareList
    If IsNull(objSecDescriptor.DACL) Then
        ''// Note: A NULL DACL gives full access to everyone, which is a serious security risk
        shareList = vbTab & "Everyone: Full Control"
    Else
        arrDACL = objSecDescriptor.DACL '// Get DACL (an array of Win32_ACE objects)
        For Each objACE In arrDACL
			Set objTrustee = objACE.Trustee
            shareList = shareList & vbTab & objTrustee.Name & ": " & GetShareAccessMaskStr(objACE.AccessMask)& vbcrlf
        Next 
    End If

	GetSharePermissions = shareList
    Set objFolderSecSetting = Nothing

End Function

Function GetShareAccessMaskStr(vAccessMaskVal)
    Dim strTemp

    Select Case vAccessMaskVal
        Case 2032127:  strTemp = "Full Control"
        Case 1245631:  strTemp = "Change"
        Case 1179817:  strTemp = "Read"   
        Case Else: strTemp = "Access Mask " & vAccessMaskVal
    End Select 
    GetShareAccessMaskStr = strTemp
End Function
