It's pretty poor etiquette to post the same question when you've not received the answer you want to a previous post.

So why on God's green Earth would you need to run a VBS from a Powershell script? It would be better to translate the VBS to Powershell.

  • Well, I posted it again because, it said the post is hidden from public view considering it a spam. Assuming public wont be able to see, I reposted it again. And thanks for answering, I can translate to powershell, I wanted to try calling the vbs. If there is an option why not use it :) - shamu 4 years ago

SCCM handles VB Scripts no problem. Check the specifics of your script, also ensure that your command line within SCCM Application/Package has cscript or wscript preceding your script name.

Using that argument coupled with the fact that you're calling a script that (presumably) uninstalls something...see here!
