copying file

WMI does let you pass credentials, but I don't know if there's a method for copying a file. It'd be pretty inefficient. There's not another means I'm aware of - the file system wasn't designed specifically for this. You could always manually map a network drive ahead of time, which does accept manua...

New-Object for Data Collection ?

Ya, I love those guys. I'm so glad someone's doing the podcast - I just couldn't make the time to keep it regular. Hal's the new Community Director at www.PowerShellCommunity.org, too, which is great for him - I hope the podcast'll help bring more folks over there.

I have an ampersand in an input file

Whelp. Not sure, then. is supposed to be the escape character in LDAP queries from the docs I'm reading. If it's not working you might be a bit stuck.

I have an ampersand in an input file

Yah, okay - the & is upsetting LDAP. Try a backslash to escape it - that's LDAP's escape character, I believe. And go on a moral campaign to eliminate & from your AD object names (grin).

I have an ampersand in an input file

Maybe this is what you're doing: If that line you showed is what's in your input file, the VBS isn't the problem. The & has special meaning to LDAP (it's part of the LDAP search syntax); you need to escape it with a character. So if you're just reading a string and plugging that as an LDAP query, tr...

File Versions information

printing out the URL of each frame in html

YOu might consider changing the way you do this entirely - it might be easier just to get the base document and use a regex to grab the src's from the HTML tags. Then load each page individually. IE has a lot of security surrounding frames that can make them pretty complex, and the COM object doesn'...
