    I need a script which will when launched, ask for a computer name (and
    receive operator input), ask for a username (and receive operator input),
    and then finally ask for a password (and receive operator input). It will
    then kick off a process to install software on a remote machine. I actually
    have the last part completed - what I do is call psexec.exe to execute a CMD
    prompt on the target machine and initiates a silent software installation.
    Administrator rights on the target machine is assumed, if not, I expect the
    script to fail. What I need is help on the three "input" parts of the
    script. Any ideas?

  2. Download a copy of script56.chm, then have a look at the InputBox method.

    .... or, as you already seem to be working with batch, you could do it this

    (set/p comp=enter computer name: )
    (set/p user=enter user name: )
    (set/p pass=enter password: )
    psexec \\%comp% -u %user% -p %pass% yourbatch.cmd
