passing variable from vbscript to batch file

Hello. I am very new to vbscripting so please be patient with me.

I am trying to create a script that will check the version of an exe file and post the info to a txt file.

I start with a batch file

gwver.bat

Code: Select all

IPCONFIG |FIND "IP" > %temp%\TEMPIP.txt
FOR /F "tokens=2 delims=:" %%a in (%temp%\TEMPIP.txt) do set IP=%%a
del %temp%\TEMPIP.txt
set IP=%IP:~1%

for /F  %%* in (c:\ver.vbs) do set ver=%%*


echo %date% ,  %username% , %computername% , %IP% , GW version = , %ver% , winxp  >> c:\install.txt 

for the value of %ver% - which would be the file version of the exe file I call on ver.vbs

Code: Select all

strComputer = "."
Dim ver
Set vbShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colFiles = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
    ("Select * from CIM_Datafile Where Name = 'c:\\novell\\Groupwise\\grpwise.exe'")

For Each objFile in colFiles
    ver = objFile.Version

batchFile = c:\gwver.bat

vbShell.run batchFile & ver
The result in the txt file is
Thu 12/08/2011 , rene , WLLB-RENE , 205.189.26.163 , GW version = , , winxp

This is not working. How do I get that variable of ver from the vbs script to the batch file.

Thank you.

Rene

I'm going to guess that you might want to change you for to read

Code: Select all

for /F  %%A in ('c:\ver.vbs') do set ver=%%A
