VBScript Is Not Working In Windows 7 Even After Regsvr32 Vbscript.dll Succeeded?
Feb 28, 2010
I have been struggling to get vbscript working for last three days of relentless effort. I have windows 7 ultimate and upgraded from windows vista. searched the web for solutions and tried out all the options I think I have, but yet no luck.
I tried registering vbscript.dll and I get a succeeded message back. Everything seems to be fine. but, I just cannot run vbscript on my computer. It complains that "can't find script engine vbscript for script ....". I have a hunch that it is something to do with "microsfot security essentials (my virus protection software)" or with UAC.
I have some scripts that i get the following error:Line: 21 Char: 1 Error: [Microsoft][ODBC Text Driver] Could not find installable ISAM.Code 80004005 Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provider For ODBC Drivers
'the below just creates a text file for my own sanity. Both files get 'created so I know the service is running as it should and not crashing. 'timer ticks every minute so if I delete the files once they have been 'created, they get recreated
Dim TextFile As New StreamWriter("C:LRQuadrant" & "test111" & ".txt") TextFile.WriteLine("blah blah blah") TextFile.Close()
I have a file called john.vbs. It only contains the following vbscript
my question is how can I execute these VBScript codes inside the Windows Form (of course in a button click event). I don't want to execute them by pointing to the VBS file, I want them to be in the EXE file when I compile the form so if I hand out the form to someone else, they cannot modify the scripts.
Recently, I start scripting on Windows 2008 server.And find out some of my code, which is work on Windows 2003, is no longer work on Windows 2008.Below is vbscript that will wait until a particular processID to be terminated before proceed to the next line of code.[code]Could someone please advise what WMI method I can use to detect processID termination in windows 2008?

how to convert from vbscript to vb.net im trying to convert the TestGenericHid.wsf script to vb.net (wheter partially or fully but im fur sure trying to do the initialization sequences) but usually the development team of a ms sdk posts it in managed code like c# or vb.net. If someone has already converted this please post but i have attemped myself to do this already but cant get any straight responses from vb.net interop guys or wdk guys so here is the full code sample:url..Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth. - "Sherlock holmes" "speak softly and carry a big stick" - theodore roosevelt.
I wish to convert the vbscript below to vb.net. Note: the functions from the script are also in a dll file but you can install the dsf runtime which comes with the windows ddk and just use the com component it installs from vb.net.
Just need help converting this .bat to vbscript. cd
Just need it to go to each user names directory when logging into a terminal server and removing all items in there respective folder. I'm assuming to user the UserString where the "user.name" is but not sure how to do this.
How come the Script below keeps displaying the Else message until it finds the string? I was expecting for it to display 1 single Box whether it was found or not? why does it keep itterating through the Else condition?
Dim myArray,myString,myString2,intCount myString = "my;string;question;hope;you;can;answer" myString2 = "question"
The VB application I am creating runs a external vbscript. The vbscript is run using cscript.exe so the output text from the script is in the CLI. I need this outputted text to be in a ListBox is my application
I have a DetailsView that I am using to insert an enrollment form into the database. Currently every functions fine, with one exception. Since there is a terms and agreement checkbox at the bottom of the form that I cannot validate using the existing validation controls, I'm trying to handle this in the VBScript.The problem is that the InsertCommand in my ASP executes before the Button_Click sub does, so the form is submitted before the checkbox validates. Can someone tell me how to move the InsertCommand from the ASP to the code file so that I can make sure it doesn't execute until AFTER my button validation? Here is my code:
I have this snippet of VB.NET code that I want to convert to VBScript. It basically starts Microsoft Word, displays the Open dialog and mail merges the selected document.
Dim oMissing As Object = System.Reflection.Missing.Value Dim oEndOfDoc As Object = "\endofdoc" Dim oFalse As Object = False 'Start Word and create a new document. Dim oWord As Word._Application Dim oDoc As Word._Document
I have a process by which I push icons to distant Vista based PCs on our domain...it's all automated. One of these itemsis a shortcut (call it MYLINK.LNK) which I put in the user's Start Menu. That shortcut calls a .WSF script that, in turn, runs a JScriptfollowed by a VBScript.The JScript installs a commercial product and the VBScript is used to clean up after itself. One of those 'clean up' jobs is to delete the icon that kicked off this entire thing.
So I have : Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") objFSO.DeleteFile("C: empstartload.wsf")
Len gives # of chars in a string in VBScript but I'm trying to find out how to get a # of words, instead.sub fred john_val=window.document.alice.john.value john_len=len(john_val) msgbox "john=" +cstr(john_len) end sub
An application I maintain has been around since VB6 days - ported to .Net 1.1, and now being updated/rewritten across to .Net 3.5 The application provides a mechanism to run VBScripts - this was done in a highly integrated way - allowing the program to parse multiple .vbs files and produce a list of all of the subroutines and functions - which were then available within the application alongside core functions.
Previously this was an embedded msscript.ocx - in the first .Net conversion, this was wrapped in Interop.MSScriptControl.dll, however, on Windows 7 this just isn't working. It looks like this is really not the way to be doing this anyway - Microsoft seem to be trying to kill vbscript.
Is there a 'supported' way of using VBScript, or is it time to move on? and if so, where is there to move to that provides the same sort of functionality?
Right now I just want to be able to read (Echo out) the Value of "VALUE" in an XML element node, and eventually modify it. This will be run with the Windows Scripting Host from a Windows command line. Here is the line of XML I want to read from:
I have a web site that includes code to move data between databases, generate Office documents, etc. I also have a need to duplicate some of this work in batch. Where they overlap, I've had to code things two different ways -- one for the web site (using server-side vb.net) and one for batch (using vbscript). I know you can run batch from vb.net. I'd like to do the opposite -- from batch I'd like to access some code that I've already written using vb.net classes, web.config, and Office interop assemblies. I tried some of this in PowerShell, but it took 45 minutes to generate a report that runs in 20 seconds through the web interface.
I took the dive into learning VBScript due to some server side scripts that I work with. During a course I ran into Powershell and did some Google searching. From what I was reading, VBScript is good for legacy applications and Powershell is the way to go for Win7. I did not run into anything telling me of this being true or if its a false statement and VBScript will be used for Win7 and Win8. Should I look into learning Powershell and abort my VBScript for now and just worry about VBScript for legacy systems?
I'm trying to send an email via a VBScript. When I run this script via a field SQL db field VBscript trigger, nothing happens. Here is my code -
Imports System Imports System.Math Imports System.Web.Mail Public Class BLGHEmail
Now, if I comment out all the statements after the Try statement, my message box appears as I coded it which means I am able to test if Sample1 = 'OK'. Even with the System.exception I am not able to display any error message. I am also pretty certain that I have the correct smtp server name. One other thing, we are using Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Exchange if that means anything. And also, pls note that this is a purchased system that I am working with and they have scripts with extension name of ".lvb". This is actually a trigger script based on a specific field value. The trigger script runs and as I had mentioned will display the message box if I were to comment out the statements after the TRY statement.
What I am wanting to do is create an application that has the ability to create a VBScript that the user can create in a my form that would have the intelisense included. Is this posible? you know something like adding VBA to my app in a way. Is this at all possible?

The script should detect which key is pressed from the keyboard, including F keys; the script should start and when the user presses F2 should print something like "you pressed F2", when the user presses "A" should print "you pressed A", and so on
I am automating an application login using vbscript.[code]after this, there is a security pop up which asks for user name and password.I dont want to disable the pop-up.
