[IronPython] FW: VBScript issue

Keith, try looking at the windows management interface objects (WMI).
This is likely something you can query with WMI, and WMI is accessible
via COM (and of course thus VBS).

Subject: [IronPython] FW: VBScript issue

A buddy of mine is trying to get information that I don't know how to
locate off-hand.  Perhaps someone here knows how.  This could be a good
IP example.. ;)


I am trying to use VBScript natively to access some info that isn't
(AFAIK) available without shelling out and using something like
NTRights.exe or SecEdit.exe.  Some of the things I am trying to get info
on are the objects in the User Rights Assignment from the Local Security
Policy for security audits.  We do this with VBScript so that all the
windows machines will support the scripts.  But since shelling out is
kinda slow, I would like to find a way to avoid that.  I don't know if a
custom COM or .NET object would allow access to these objects without
shelling out, but that is the only option I can think of at this point.
