Reporting on Apple IOS ActiveSync Devices, v2

For a while I've known that my original Reporting on Apple IOS ActiveSync Devices script needed optimising as it takes hours to parse over large IIS logs.

After spending some time looking at ways to improve it, I came across Log Parser 2.2, which is exactly the right tool for this job as it enables parsing all kinds of log files, including IIS logs, very, very quickly.

I've re-written the script to take advntage of Log Parser. This new code will analyze log files in just a few seconds, and provide the same output as the old script.

Obviously you will need to have Log Parser 2.2 installed for this script to work.
