Win98 Backup Scripts

By dutch_consulting ·
Is it possible to control the 98 Backup utility with VB or VBscript? I'd like to see an object model for backup, if there is one.

First of all your question belongs in proramming not in Win9x.
Now for your question maybe the file object librery has some options for backup, im not sure.
Next try to add the backup program to the object browser.

I had already looked in the object browser, but I couldn?t find a reference to the Backup library. If someone could provide a reference file (dll) for ms backup that would help.

Try doing a reference to the *.exe file itself.

The object browser will not let you reference this *.EXE.

According to MS full automation of MS Backup can not be accomplished. You arfe limited to using task manager for scheduling.
