Thinkpad yoga 11e does not run working vbscript

2015-04-24, 18:58 PM

I'm using the Thinkpad to run the sample script ListAll.vbs provided by Lenovo. The script works fine on other models but when I try to run it on the Yoga 11e the return is an equal sign only. I looked at the documantation and it list the Yoga as compatiable so what could cause this issue?

Are you using latest BIOS version?  I think some older BIOS versions had a problem with this feature.

I have double-checked my ThinkPad Yoga 11e here, and it is working correctly.  My system originally had BIOS 1.15, which worked.  Then, to double-check, I updated to the latest BIOS 1.16 which also worked.

 

Please double-check that you are using the correct scripts here:  http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/script.zip

 

"cscript.exe ListAll.vbs"

 

If you're still having problems, then I suspect something is wrong with your OS image, or some other software you have installed is interfering somehow.

The system has 1.16, it appears only scripts using the Lenovo_BiosElement base class do not work as scripts using win32 works correctly.

Are you running a Lenovo preload, or your own custom/corporate image?

 

I think we're at the point where you need to try with the Lenovo factory preload (or else a completely clean Win7/Win8.1 install).  My guess is that something in your image is interfering with the Lenovo_Bios* class, although I don't know what it could be.

Finally realized the issue, the user account we used to run the script did not have administrator privileges which prevented the script from runnig.

Yes, these scripts require admin rights.

Sorry I didn't suggest that.  I assumed you knew it since you claimed you were already running this script successfully on the other models.
