Windows check_files without WSH

I’d like to check the age of some log files on a Windows machine. Unfortunately Windows Scripting Host (WSH) is disabled on that machine due to security reasons and I can not use the NSClient “check_files.vbs” and in C:\Program Files\ICINGA2\sbin\ is no corresponding check I could use.

Has anybody of you already created a workaround or found a solution for this?
