    Sorry about the newbie question. I'm rather new to
    scripting and couldn't find a solution in the Script

    I need a way to allow a user to unlock another user
    account on a stand alone WinXP Pro machine.

    I stuck two scripts together to get one that unlocked an
    account, however I'm not sure how to get a normal user to
    have the privilege to run it:

    strComputer = "ComputerName"
    Set objUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/User")
    objUser.IsAccountLocked = False

    I was hoping to be able to use RunAs with Sanur.exe (found
    a link in this NG), however I believe that RunAs only
    works for .exes, .mmc etc, but not .vbs.

    I have also thought of embedding it into a .bat file and
    using SU.exe however that also has problems.

    So, is there anyway I can embed a Username and Password of
    an account that has permission to unlock another account
    and run a .vbs file INTO the .vbs script?

    I hope all this makes sense!

    Thanks in advance,

  2. I was hoping to be able to use RunAs with Sanur.exe (found
    Cscript.exe and wscript.exe are executables. So, you can use RunAs:
    cscript.exe your_script.vbs.
