VBS Scripting with Windows Script Host (WSH)
Links to Introductions, Tutorials & Problem Solution

Welcome to our Windows Scripting Host (WSH) guide. Microsoft currently offers three hosts for running scripting language code. They are:
  • Internet Explorer (IE)
  • Internet Information Server (IIS)
  • Windows Script Host (WSH, VBS)
The Internet Explorer and the Internet Information Server are well known to developers. However, many developers may not be familiar with the Windows Script Host. WSH (VBS) is a very useful tool that allows you to directly run VBScript, JScript and XML encoded scripts natively within the operating system.

Windows Script Host is the successor of batch files and enables scripts to be executed directly on the Windows desktop or command console, without the need to embed those scripts in an HTML document. Scripts can be run directly from the desktop by clicking on a script file, or from the command console. WSH provides a low-memory scripting host that is ideal for non-interactive scripting needs, such as logon scripting, administrative scripting, and so on.

Windows Script Host comes free with Windows 2000/XP and 98/ME. If you have Windows 95 or NT, WSH can be downloaded for free from Microsoft as part of a package called "Windows Script 5.1". Click here to download WSH (free) directly from Microsoft.
