These sample start session scripts illustrate how to write environment variables to a file, test the timeout functionality, and test a non-zero exit code.

The following sample Visual Basic script writes all the environment variables provided to the script into a file. You can use this sample script to see example data in your own environment. You might save this script as C:\sample.vbs.

Option Explicit
Dim WshShell, FSO, outFile, strOutputFile, objUserEnv, strEnv

strOutputFile = "c:\setvars.txt"

Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.fileSystemObject")
Set outFile = FSO.CreateTextFile(strOutputFile, TRUE)
outFile.WriteLine("Script was called at (" & Now & ")")

Set WshShell = CreateObject( "WScript.Shell" )
Set objUserEnv = WshShell.Environment("PROCESS")
For Each strEnv In objUserEnv


The following sample script tests the timeout functionality.

Option Explicit
WScript.Sleep 60000

The following sample script tests a non-zero exit code.
