Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
If you're responsible for Windows infrastructure, you should be scripting. Microsoft's VBScript is perfectly designed for the task, and Microsoft VBScript Step by Step is perfectly designed for mastering it.

You'll learn by using VBScript for things you actually might do. Your very first script won't be "Hello, World": it's a six-line script confirming that all your servers have admin tools installed. Right up front, Microsoft enterprise consultant Ed Wilson teaches you how to read and adapt existing scripts, so you can start leveraging everyone else's scripts immediately.

Then, using Wilson's extensive collection of hands-on practice exercises and sample scripts, you'll learn how to streamline every corner of day-to-day Windows administration: file systems, folders, WMI, networking and network printing, the registry, logon scripts, even Active Directory, IIS 6.0, and Exchange. This book may save you more time than anything else you read this year. Bill Camarda, from the February 2007 Read Only
