Windows 7: VB Script Error

VB Script Error


I am sorry if I have posted this I the wrong place I wasn't sure where to put it,

I am trying to open and run a .vbs file but I keep getting the following error

'There is no script engine for file extension '.vbs' '

I have searched the internet and found this link

There is no script engine for file extension “.vbs” « A Place for C Sharpers/.Netters

I have done everything it says to do in CMD.exe but I cannot find the file


I've looking in the C:\Windows\inf directory but the file isn't there

Anyone know how I can fix this error

Much Appreciated

I have managed to get it to work now, thank you, z3r010 BUT it is now bringing up a error on the .vbs file but when I ran it before there was not error, could this be related?

its pointing to line 68

objLog.WriteLine objFile.Name & " contains " & colMatches.Count & " matches. Manual adjustment required."
