Hi Vincent Dudler,

Windows VISTA has support for VBS and JS. I don't think the problem you are having is related to virus.

While running VBS in vista you have to follow some simple process so that it works effectively.

1. Always use notepad to write the script and save it as .vbs extension file.

2. Don't run the script by double clicking it through windows explorer.

3. Use a command prompt by typing cmd in the blank search field of the windows tab.

4. Run the script from here.

5. You can run into trouble if your user has limited privileges. It's better to have administrator privileges while running the script. So, remember to run as administrator.

6. As a precaution adds an exception list for the required script in your Antivirus as they tend to block script by default.

Hope that solves your issue.

Thanks & Regards,

DBD

Hi Vincent,

You could run the .vbs file as administrator if it could not work or find anything. To run .VBS files as administrator with right-clicking on them, you should follow these instructions:

1. Run regedit and press Enter.

2. navigate to this registry key:

 HKEY_CLASSES_ROOTVBSFileShell

3. right-click on Shell and then New >> Key.

4. Change the name of this key as run as.

5. Close now the registry editor and go and make a right-click on a .VBS file to see the difference now.

Then you could execute the file.

It may work for you. Please try it.

Thanks.
