Hey Sweta

not sure, you're mixing things up here. Is it windows or linux you wanna 
do a local check for?

In windows visual basic, cmd-line and powershell scripts (.vbs, .cmd, 
.bat, .ps1) should natively work fine for local checks; a properly 
integrated python,perl, whatsover will probably work, too if paths are 
properly set. This won't work out of the box, though.

In linux bash, python, perl and probably any other stuff should work if 
the script for the local check is correct.

You just have to make sure that your output line is correct according to 
the cmk howto.
