I want to Count the number of client connection connected to a shared folder using vbscript. I can use any service but not WMIservice.

Why would you not use WMI?

sComputer = "."
sShare = "C$"

Set oWMI = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & sComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colConnections = oWMI.ExecQuery("ASSOCIATORS OF {Win32_Share.Name=""" & 
sShare & """} WHERE AssocClass=Win32_ConnectionShare")

WScript.Echo colConnections.Count & " open connections on \\" & sComputer & 
"\" & sShar
