I need to be able to Pin the Calculator to the start menu on around 60 remote
computers, is there some way of doing this?

Some script maybe?

There is no Programmatic acess to the Pinned list. But here is a workaround
from our Scripting Guy

Yeah I've seen this and I can run this from the command prompt using csript
or wscript on my local machine, but I need some way of running a batch file
type thing where I can run it on a number of remote pc's

The script should run fine on remote PCs. How about a logon script?

Yeah we could do it that way, but I though it would be just as easy to run a
one off script that looped through and ran my pin_calc.vbs script on each pc
in a list.

Just not sure how to do this??

Should be possible using WMI. Try this question in WMI groups.

Windows Script Host

WshRemote Object
See Also
WshController Object

Language
a.. JScript

b.. VBScript

c.. Show All



Provides access to the remote script process.

Remarks
The WshRemote object allows you to remotely administer computer systems on a
computer network. It represents an instance of a WSH script, i.e., a script
file with one of the following extensions: .wsh, .wsf, .js, .vbs, .jse,
..vbe, and so on. An instance of a running script is a process. You can run
the process either on the local machine or on a remote machine. If you do
not provide a network path, it will run locally. When a WSHRemote object is
created (by using the CreateScript() method), the script is copied to the
target computer system. Once there, the script does not begin executing
immediately; it begins executing only when the WSHRemote method Execute is
invoked. Through the WshRemote object interface, your script can manipulate
other programs or scripts. Additionally, external applications can also
manipulate remote scripts. The WshRemote object works asynchronously over
DCOM.

Example
The following example demonstrates how the WshRemote object is used to start
a remote script.

[VBScript]
Dim Controller, RemoteScript
Set Controller = WScript.CreateObject("WSHController")
Set RemoteScript = Controller.CreateScript("test.js", "remoteserver")
RemoteScript.Execute

Do While RemoteScript.Status <> 2
WScript.Sleep 100
Loop[JScript]
var Controller = WScript.CreateObject("WSHController");
var RemoteScript = Controller.CreateScript("test.js", "remoteserver");
RemoteScript.Execute();

while (RemoteScript.Status != 2) {
WScript.Sleep(100);
}Properties
Status Property | Error Property

Methods
Execute Method | Terminate Method

Events
Start Event | End Event | Error Event
