Can someone point me to a good reference for writing VBS files? I've been a VB man from ver3 to ver6 (no .net) and it's time for me to venture into VBS for lighter scripting instead of batch files.

Chris,
I would recommend that you attempt to get a copy of the "Windows 2000 Scripting Guide" ISBN: 0735618674.
There is a wealth of information to be had there.

Kind Regards,

Thanks Robert, I'm going to go look for that book. Do people tend to write these in Notepad, or are there utils out there?

Chris.

Chris,

There are a number of utilities both free and licensed that are used.
I personnelly use Primal Script.

You might want to look at a Command Library (for batch files) before completely jumping ship.

You can have a lot of the functionality of VBS while writing code that "feels like" a shell script.

See (ntlib.com) [FREE] and (NTCmdLib.com) [Almost Free].

I thought you were referring to the "Download" section of the site, not of the editor. The editor download page presents a form for you to be notified when the demo becomes available. The resulting message advised that you would be notified as requested, but included an erroneous message regarding an actual download as well (which has been removed). Thank you for pointing it out!

The Admin Script Editor is now available for download. It also includes a tool for packaging your scripts into encrypted executables that run secure and offer "RunAs" support. The editor has lots of unique functions and supports VBScript, KiXtart, AutoIt and Batch.
