Retrieving the output from a command line by JPBERGEZ
Posted: 14 Mar 03

The following code uses the Windwos 2OOO RSK tool whoami to identify the current user ans his group membership, then retrieve the output from this command to display it. I know it's not wonderful but this is an example

Dim WshShell, oExec
Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

'The tool is launched
Set oExec = WshShell.Exec("Whoami /all")

'We wait for the end of process
Do While oExec.Status = 0
     WScript.Sleep 100

'We scan and display the command output flow
Do While oExec.StdOut.AtEndOfStream <> True
          Wscript.Echo oExec.StdOut.ReadLine

* does'nt work with shell commands (dir, type etc...)
* The stdOut.ReadLine can be replaced with a StdOut.Read(1) to allow reading the stdOut character by character.
* The StdOut property does exist too. Not yet tested.
