Check multiple Dell Asset Tags for warranty

march 6, 2012: Dell recently changed the warranty site so this script will not work anymore. Please see for a program which searches the information for you.


Use the attached script to check multiple Dell Asset tags for warranty (place all asset tags in a file called: “DellServiceTags.txt”):

download: [wpdm_fileid=”5″]

When run it uses the service tags from the text file to create a csv file (results.csv). Below is an example off the results.csv file in excel.

  1. Works Great! I had to do a few slight modifications regarding the site name, but otherwise it works well. I recommend to run this in DOS using the cscript command, otherwise you will constantly get pop-up windows etc. I am currently running through about 1200 serials per hour.

  2. @Theo Meyer

    What modifications in the site name did you do? I’ve seen a few formatting issues (i’ve corrected them now), but the sitename should be the right one?

  3. Having a little trouble running/debugging this script. “expected end of state @ line 22, 70”. can’t seem to spot error.

  4. Hi Anon, I’ve copied a new script after Theo Meyer pointed a few problems. After that i discovered that this script missed a few lines. Please download the file through the link provided in the article. This should work.

  5. I cannot get this to work. I opened the link at the top, copy and paste into notepad and save as .vbs. I get errors on line 12 pos 1. I’ve tried to edit but i’m new to scripting. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  6. Best ever script, been looking for ages for something like this!!

    Unlike many scripts you pick up on the web, they usually don’t work. You script simply works and deliver results 🙂

    Bastiaan – you are the king!

  7. Great work. I ran into the 12 issue as well, it was a silly issue. i had extensions turned off on windows 7 32bit and had a dellservicetags.txt.txt file instead of dellservicetags.txt

    works like a charm without additional run time needed.

  8. Same here, I can’t download this script, or any others that appear to be going through the Download Manager WP plugin. I’d REALLY like to use this one!!

    How do I use this script or run it? I never worked with these before.

    Just download the script save it like a vbs and run it. Make sure you have a DellServiceTags.txt file where the service tags from your machines are in.

  10. Hi Bastiaan,

    I am hoping you can help me with your code. :o)

    When I try to run it I get an error Code 80070005 from source msxml3.dll with description Access is denied.

    I have done a bit of googling and found many pages saying this error is due to the line:

    Set objHTTP = CreateObject(“Msxml2.XMLHTTP”)

    I have changed this to

    Set objHTTP = CreateObject(“Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP.4.0”)

    And no longer get the error but no results returned. :o)

    I am completely “green” when it comes to scripting so any help you could give me would be most welcome as I have over 600 machines to check.

    Many thanks

  11. Hi Baastian

    I found this script last week and it worked really well thank you. I have now tried it again today and i am getting the same as the above user IT8055.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Many Thanks

  12. Hi, something todo with a MS patch. Change line 9:
    Set objHTTP = CreateObject(“Msxml2.XMLHTTP”)

    Set objHTTP = CreateObject(“Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP.4.0”)

    Updated the script.

  13. Hi Guys,

    I was able to get it to run once I changed the line to just:

    Set objHTTP = CreateObject(“Msxml2.ServerXMLHTTP”)

    But I am having an issue now where I get “No warranty information found.”

    Do I have to do anything different to get it to work again?

  14. Hi Baastiaan

    Used the updated script that you posted yesterday and the script works now without errors but in the results.CSV file it says “No warranty information found.” on all the service tags.


  15. If you want to check more then one item of Dell warranty I use this tool.I can also export results to csv.
    It also determine expiration of extended warranties.

  16. bback i tried using that tool and it gives a very messy output that doesn’t transfer into an excel spread sheet. all the info sits in one cell. have you found a fix for this?

  17. Hi chris,
    and what type of output are you getting?
    For me it works like a charm!
    If you import more than one service tag, there is for each item one line also in CSV.
    If you have some extended warranties for your HW it also show lifecycle if it (shipdate,enddate,, etc.)
    Could you provide a screenshot of output?

  18. I am having the same issue as Theo Meyer, i keep getting “no warranty information” found 🙁

    Same Here

  20. This might be something to do with site routing. Seems that for people outside the USA it is working fine, but for in the US it’s not working. Can anyone confirm this? I keep getting the ‘No Information Found’ for all the items.
