What is a "Windows Script"?

In the K2000, Library / Pre-Installation Tasks / Choose Action, are several options:

Add Application
Add BAT Script
Add Shell Script
Add DiskPart Script
Add Windows Script

Most of these are pretty self-explanatory:
- an application might be an .exe you've created with a Windows app compiler (Visual Basic, Visual CC, Ruby, Python-to.exe, etc).
- a BAT script is what we've been doing for 25 years from the DOS prompt - @echo off / copy blah blah / print blah blah
- a Shell script is a more powerful version of the BAT script, but just for the Mac OS, presumably using BASH
- a DiskPart script would be a script specifically for use in the diskpart utility, for partitioning a drive
- but what is a "Windows Script"?

Is it a batch file by a different name? Is it a PowerShell script? If so, why isn't it called a PowerShell script? Is it some built-in Windows scripting utility with which I'm unfamiliar? other?

Thanks!

I'm am not a KACE user, but I believe that this option is used for VBScript (.VBS and .VBE files), JScript (.JS and .JSE files) and whatever else is handled by the Windows Script Host.
