If I understand correctly , Admin Script Editor 4.0 is free. But the generate code button and some other buttons are grayed out?

It depends on which code generating feature you are looking to use, but the basic reason is that you need to have a script open and selected to receive the code being generated. For eample, if you are using Logon Script Builder and have chosen "VBScript", you need to have a VBScript document open in ASE to generate code. If you are using the Script Form Designer, and are creating a PowerShell form, you'll need to have a PowerShell document open in ASE to generate code.

I did review your instructions on youtube, too.

  • I did installed on two PCs but it is the same result. Do I need to delete the script and then leave the blank page open to generate the code?
  • how to send the attachment to this forum so I can show you the screen

Another possibility is that the COM object used by add-ins to send code to ASE is not properly registered-- reinstallation should address such a situation.
