How can we allow users to run VBS scripts on their laptops when not on our domain? 

by on November 2, 2010

Q: I’ve got a batch file that creates a local account with certain rights and runs a vbs script that logs the success/failure ratio.

Only problem is… the average user doesn’t have the rights to run it successfully. We are in the process of removing DNA (NetSupport) and installing LanDesk, which will allow us to send the batch with admin rights, but our laptop users are complaining that they cant use their laptops at home because they’re not on the domain.

Is there a way we can run the batch file with admin rights? possibly with a script? (we had a contractor do it a month ago for something else with a visual basic compiled exe if I remember correctly…)
