I hope there's some coders out there!

I found a nice script to install the latest Java Runtime 11, but it needs to be run locally.

What I'd like is for this vb script to read a text file with the PC names requiring the update and run through it, with error handling so if a PC is unresponsive, it won't stop.

I'm getting sporadic results using psexec and calling cscript. Does anybody have some tools to accomplish this mass deployment?

' Script to install the J2SE Runtime Environment version 5.0 Update 11.

dim objReg, objWshShell

const HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE = &H80000002

' set the key variables
strKeyPath1 = "SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Update\Policy"

strComputer = "."

Set objWshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objReg=GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=imp ersonate}!\"&_
strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")

Any ideas?
