run active x script by scheduled task

run active x script by scheduled task

run active x script by scheduled task

hi i have created an which is running perfectly under a ssis package with the desired output , but i tried executing it as a windows scheduled task and eventhough it runs with no errors it does not do anything.

'************************************************* ***********
' Visual Basic ActiveX Script
'************************************************* ***********

Function Main()

Dt = now()

y = Right(Year(Dt),2)
m = Month(Dt)
d = Day(Dt)

If Len(m) = 1 Then
m = "0" & m
End If

If Len(d) = 1 Then
d = "0" & d
End If

Filename= m & d & y & ".txt"

SFile ="C:\archive\"

DFile ="C:\archive\"

SFile1 = SFile &"UtilityDB_log_"& Filename
SFile2 = SFile &"Distributor_log_"& Filename

DFile1 =DFile & "UtilityDB_log.txt"
DFile2 =DFile & "Distributor_log.txt"

Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

If (FSO.FileExists(DFile1)) Then

Set NewFile = FSO.GetFile(DFile1)

End If

If (FSO.FileExists(DFile2)) Then

Set NewFile = FSO.GetFile(DFile2)
NewFile.Copy (SFile2)

End If

Set FSO = Nothing
Main = DTSTaskExecResult_Success
End Function

I do have all the permissions to do this delete(when executing the ssis i used my login and when scheduling windows task i use my credentials)

this is what i did.

I have the script saved as a c:\temp\scripts\rename.vbs

i went to schedule tasks, under run i clicked browse and choose my vbs file, added my login. It runs fine but like i said it does not return any outputs.

Can someone tell me what am i doing wrong.
