Chapter 4. File and Registry Access > Getting Real Work Done

Getting Real Work Done

The first three chapters of this book covered Windows Script Host, gave an overview of VBScript programming, and showed how to use Windows COM/ActiveX objects. Now, we get to start applying all that background information toward useful ends.

In this and the following chapters, I'll discuss several powerful COM objects provided with Windows that you can use when writing scripts. These objects can manipulate files, run programs, reconfigure Windows, and help with network administration. As I introduce these objects, I'll give real-world examples of script programs that you can use in their entirety or as the basis for writing scripts of your own.
