RE: Best VBscript book for beginners??
These are the books I use and recommend.
Microsoft Windows 2000 Scripting Guide
by Microsoft Corporation
NOTES: This is a very comprehensive book that applies to Windows 2000 and above. Most everything works with WinNT 4 as well.
Microsoft Windows Scripting Self-Paced Learning Guide
by Ed Wilson (Microsoft Press)
NOTES: This is a good learning reference, but it does focus on Windows XP & Windows Server 2003. There are a few things that are not backward compatible.
Managing Windows With Vbscript and WMI
by Don Jones
NOTES: Pretty basic reference that covers using VBScript to interface with WMI. Not overly complicated for the beginner, might be a little simple for the experieced VBScripter.
