Windows 7: Run a VBS file on USB drive when the drive is plugged in

Run a VBS file on USB drive when the drive is plugged in

I would like to run my "Example.vbs" file that is located on a USB drive when ever the USB device is plugged into any PC.

Two wiki-pages AutoPlay AND AutoRun have not helped. I have also searched this forum for AutoRun and AutoPlay ... without relevant success.
The wiki explanations are complex and I am none the wiser
I assumed either "AutoPlay" or AutoRun.inf" would lead to success, but so far nothing.

The USB drive is moved between 6 PCs, 4x Win7 (32/64bit), 1x Win8(64bit) and 1x WinXP(32bit)

I would appreciate any help :)

After several hours of searching (and learning) ... cannot be done in Windows 7.
MS removed the ability in Win7 for security reasons.
