WshShell Object

Provides access to the native Windows shell.

Wsh Shell Object graphic

You create a WshShell object whenever you want to run a program locally, manipulate the contents of the registry, create a shortcut, or access a system folder. The WshShell object provides the Environment collection. This collection allows you to handle environmental variables (such as WINDIR, PATH, or PROMPT).

The following example demonstrates the creation of a shortcut to the script being run and a URL shortcut to www.microsoft.com:

<package>
   <job id="vbs">
      <script language="VBScript">
         set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
         strDesktop = WshShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop")
         set oShellLink = WshShell.CreateShortcut(strDesktop & "\Shortcut Script.lnk")
         oShellLink.TargetPath = WScript.ScriptFullName
         oShellLink.WindowStyle = 1
         oShellLink.Hotkey = "CTRL+SHIFT+F"
         oShellLink.IconLocation = "notepad.exe, 0"
         oShellLink.Description = "Shortcut Script"
         oShellLink.WorkingDirectory = strDesktop
         oShellLink.Save
      </script>
   </job>

   <job id="js">
      <script language="JScript">
         var WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell");
         strDesktop = WshShell.SpecialFolders("Desktop");
         var oShellLink = WshShell.CreateShortcut(strDesktop + "\\Shortcut Script.lnk");
         oShellLink.TargetPath = WScript.ScriptFullName;
         oShellLink.WindowStyle = 1;
         oShellLink.Hotkey = "CTRL+SHIFT+F";
         oShellLink.IconLocation = "notepad.exe, 0";
         oShellLink.Description = "Shortcut Script";
         oShellLink.WorkingDirectory = strDesktop;
         oShellLink.Save();
      </script>
   </job>
</package>
