.. omatic

Been surfing today and found a whole load of Microsoft .. omatic utilities

The Tweakomatic is a nifty new utility that writes scripts that allow you to retrieve and/or configure Windows and Internet Explorer settings. So what, you might ask. Well, think about it. Because these are WMI scripts, they can be used to configure settings on remote computers. Need to change something on a remote machine? Then haul out the Tweakomatic. And think about this: because the Tweakomatic writes scripts, you could do something like run these scripts as logon or logoff scripts. In other words, you could quickly, easily, and automatically configure settings on any or all the computers in your organization. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=bd328d1e-6c01-4447-bd7c-c09646d722c8&displaylang=en

ADSI Scriptomatic
The ADSI Scriptomatic is designed to help you write ADSI scripts; that is, scripts that can be used to manage Active Directory. The ADSI Scriptomatic also teaches you an important point about ADSI scripting: like WMI, there are consistent patterns to ADSI scripts. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=39044e17-2490-487d-9a92-ce5dcd311228&DisplayLang=en

HTA Helpomatic
The HTA Helpomatic is a utility that helps script writers create HTML Applications (HTAs). HTAs enable you to provide a graphical user interface for your scripts, an interface that can include anything from list boxes to radio buttons to checkboxes. The HTA Helpomatic includes sample VBScript code and sample HTML code showing you how to do things like add a button to an HTA. Equally important, the Helpomatic also shows you how you can run a script any time that button is clicked. As an added bonus, the Helpomatic enables you to modify the scripts and HTML code and test those modifications in the utility itself. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=231D8143-F21B-4707-B583-AE7B9152E6D9&displaylang=en

Scriptomatic 2.0
A completely new version of the famous Scriptomatic, the utility that writes WMI scripts for you. (And, in the process, teaches you the fundamental concepts behind writing WMI scripts for yourself.) Unlike its predecessor, Scriptomatic 2.0 isn’t limited to writing just VBScript scripts; instead, Scriptomatic 2.0 can write scripts in Perl, Python, or JScript as well. In addition, Scriptomatic 2.0 gives you a host of new output formats to use when running scripts, including saving data as plain-text, as a stand-alone Web page, or even as XML. Scriptomatic 2.0 handles arrays, it converts dates to a more readable format, and it works with all the WMI classes on your computer; on top of all that, it also writes scripts that can be run against multiple machines. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=09dfc342-648b-4119-b7eb-783b0f7d1178&DisplayLang=en
