What's everyone's favorite VB Script editor?

I've tried AdminScript Editor and it's pretty good. My trial ran out and I'm not keen on buying it at that price without trying some others (I'd be more inclined if upgrades were at least free).

Upgrades are free for a full year (even if a full point release comes out). Do check out the others. To get a good look at what ASE really does for you, check out the new reviewers guide: http://www.adminscripteditor.com/editor/Help/ASE_Reviewer_Guide_v2.2.pdf

Thanks for your feedback. I'm trying PrimalScript now and it seems pretty good. Much better than the others I've mucked about with.

Bob, how often do you update AdminScript? I need to watch my pennies as I'm a contractor.. I don't just bill software costs to my employer.

If you are looking to watch your pennies, you'll find PrimalScript far more expensive with little to show for it when compared to ASE. However, if you are interested in manipulating ActionScript, Jscript, C#, PHP, and such- PrimalScript is indeed a fine product, but if you are intersted in admin scripting (VBS, KiXtart, AutoIt, Batch) - I don't think there is much of a decision to make. I strongly urge you to use them both for awhile doing real work.

Keep in mind that most people that use a script editor are very adament about the one they know- so you will get strong opinions from people. Not many people know more than one editor very well, and those that don't use an editor at all have a hard time understanding the value until they sit down and take a close look.

As to how often it is updated, you can see a history here:

Thanks for everyone's feedback. It seems PrimalScript is the most popular tool. I tried it and AdminScript (and some others that were so poor that they aren't worth mentioning).

I encourage the PrimalScript guys to try out AdminScript Editor if you're only doing VB, KiX, etc as it seems (at least to me) to have the same features and it's cheaper.

I'm going to buy AdminScript as soon as I get incorporated next month. If I ever get into the other languages, I might switch over if ASE doesn't handle them by then.. but for now it suits me fine.
