JScript:


<script language="JScript">
    function fnShellShellLinkObjectArgumentJ()
    {
        var objShell = new ActiveXObject("shell.application");
        var objFolder;
        var ssfPROGRAMS = 2;
        
        objFolder = objShell.NameSpace(ssfPROGRAMS);
        if (objFolder != null)
        {
            var objFolderItem;
            
            objFolderItem = objFolder.ParseName("Internet Explorer.lnk");
            if (objFolderItem != null)
            {
                var objShellLink;
                
                objShellLink = objFolderItem.GetLink;
                if (objShellLink != null)
                {
                    var szArguments;
                    
                    // Get the arguments for the ShellLinkObject
                    szArguments = objShellLink.Arguments;
                    alert(szArguments);
                    
                    // Set the arguments for the ShellLinkObject
                    objShellLink.Arguments = "/s"
                }
            }
        }
    }
</script>


VBScript:


<script language="VBScript">
    function fnShellLinkObjectArgumentVB()
        dim objShell
        dim objFolder
        dim ssfPROGRAMS
        
        ssfPROGRAMS = 2
        set objShell = CreateObject("shell.application")
        set objFolder = objShell.NameSpace(ssfPROGRAMS)

        if (not objFolder is nothing) then
            dim objFolderItem
            
            set objFolderItem = objFolder.ParseName("Internet Explorer.lnk")

            if (not objFolderItem is nothing) then
                dim objShellLink
                
                set objShellLink = objFolderItem.GetLink

                if (not objShellLink is nothing) then
                    dim szArguments
                    
                    'Get the arguments for the ShellLinkObject
                    szArguments = objShellLink.Arguments
                    alert(szArguments)
                    
                    'Set the arguments for the ShellLinkObject
                    objShellLink.Arguments = "/s"
                end if

                set objShellLink = nothing
            end if

            set objFolderItem = nothing
        end if
        set objFolder = nothing
        set objShell = nothing
    end function
 </script>


Visual Basic:


Private Sub fnShellLinkObjectArgumentsVB()
    Dim objShell  As Shell
    Dim objFolder As Folder
    
    Set objShell = New Shell
    Set objFolder = objShell.NameSpace(ssfPROGRAMS)
        If (Not objFolder Is Nothing) Then
            Dim objFolderItem As FolderItem
            
            Set objFolderItem = objFolder.ParseName("Internet Explorer.lnk")

            If (Not objFolderItem Is Nothing) Then
                Dim objShellLink As ShellLinkObject

                    Debug.Print szArguments
