Find and report all managed Windows PCs in K1000 Inventory with a smartcard reader installed.
The script does not depend on K1000, so if you don’t have KACE SMA in your environment don’t worry: the script is still useful!
strComputer = "." Dim log Set log = Wscript.CreateObject("Scripting.Filesystemobject") Set f = log.CreateTextFile("C:\Tools\smartcard.txt", 2) Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\CIMV2") Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery( _ "SELECT * FROM Win32_PnPSignedDriver Where DeviceClass = 'SMARTCARDREADER'",,48) For Each objItem in colItems f.WriteLine "DeviceClass: " & objItem.DeviceClass Next f.Close
Set f = log.CreateTextFile("C:\Tools\smartcard.txt", 2)
Go to your K1000 Dashboard, then go to Scripting and create a New Script (Choose Action / New)

Otherwise, if a smart card reader has not been discovered, we’ll have no text
When all your devices has been inventoried and you’re ready, jump to the next section
