Script modifications

I am using VBP to modify a bunch of scripts, I am trying to find a specific step and make some modifications to it, especially using encrypted passwords. Below is what I have but I am not sure about the password property making sure that the password is correct and that the encryption flag is set correctly in the BLD file.

Code:
Dim objApp, objStep, iNewIndex

Set objApp = CreateObject("VisBuildSvr.Application")
objApp.Project.Load "%PROCFILES_FULLPATH%"

'Set Find Step
For Each objStep in objApp.Project.Steps(vbldStepMain)
	If objStep.Name = "Map Drive to Shared Output" and objStep.Action = "Map Drive" Then
		objStep.Checked = True
		objStep.Property("Password") = "SOME_ENCRYPTED_PASSWORD"
		objStep.Property("Username") = "DOMAIN\USER"
		objStep.Property("buildfailsteps") = CBool(0)
		Exit For
	End If
	iNewIndex = iNewIndex + 1
Next

It's not currently possible to define an encrypted step property from script code (you would need to use the step's [undocumented] IObjectProperties interface, which isn't accessible from VBScript). You can create/update an encrypted project macro via Macros.AddEx, so you could do that and then assign the macro's value (i.e., "%MAP_DRIVE_PWD%") to the step property.

so the weird thing is that the if the flag is set through the GUI just running the script to update the password does put some crazy text in the final BLD file.

If I go down the route of creating an encrypted macro how can I set the Encrypted flag creating an object with VBScript.

True, you can update an existing encrypted step property using the usual Step.Property statement. To create/update an encrypted macro value, use AddEx and pass True for the encrypt parameter.

I will give it a try in the morning, just to understand I CANT set the encrypted flag in the XML that is part of the BLD file but if its already set I can update the property and it will encrypt the password for me.

Other option is to store the password in macro and just assign the macro to the password field. I will post my results in the AM

In v9, encrypted properties can be created via the Step.Property2 property.
