Here is a VBScript I have used in the past that sets the <result> so that
the value is returned to LiveCode.

dim theSubError
dim theProcesses

On Error Resume Next

'grabs the full process list and puts it in a var
if Err.Number = 0 then
set objService = getobject("winmgmts:")
for each Process in objService.InstancesOf("Win32_process")
theProcesses = theProcesses & Process.Name & vbLf
end if

if Err.Number <> 0 then
result = Err.Number & ": " & Err.Description
result = theProcesses
end if
