A. If you require user input from a script but don't want it displayed to screen, you can use the .Net ScriptPW.Password object, as the following code shows:

Set oScriptPW = CreateObject("ScriptPW.Password") wscript.echo "Type text and press the Enter key: " strHiddenText = oScriptPW.GetPassword() wscript.echo "Text entered was : " & strHiddenText

This works only on XP and Windows 2000 and earlier versions?
