    I have a script with the following code block:


    On Error Resume Next
    Set objWMIService = GetObject(“winmgmts:\” & strServer & “rootCIMV2”)
    If Err.Number Then

    End If

    However, when I run it where strServer = nonExistantMachine I get a complete lack of error handling:

    (290, 14) Microsoft VBScript runtime error: The remote server machine does not exist or is unavailable

    Why is this occurring if I have told it to continue on error so that I can handle it myself?
