    I have tried to do the shortcut both with and without the success message and I get the error message:

    For shortcut with success message)
    Can't find script engine "VBScript" "C:\Program Files\Restore Point Shortcut\CreateRP-Success_Message.vbs".

    For shortcut w/o success message)
    Can't find script engine "VBScript" "C:\Program Files\Restore Point Shortcut\CreateRP.vbs".

    Please let me know if you have any ideas.

    Thanks
    Hello Ferreel, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    It sounds like you missed doing steps 7-11 to place the extracted folder with the .vbs file at the location in your post. :)

    Shawn,

    Thanks, but I did copy it over. I do have the feeling that I may be overlooking something simple though. I have attached a screenshot of my error.

    It looks like it can't find the vbscript file. Double check to make sure that you have these files below.

    C:\Windows\System32\vbscript.dll

    and

    C:\Windows\System32\wscript.exe

    As a test, download and merge the vbs option in the tutorial below to restore it's default associations to see if that gets rid of the error for you afterwards.

    Shawn,

    I have both the vbscript.dll and wscript.exe files. I also downloaded and merged the vbs option in the tutorial and restarted my computer but still got the same error.

    Ferreel,

    Double check the registry location below to see if you have the same path set for (Default). If you need help with the registry, then please let me know before proceeding.

    Shawn,

    It appears my default is referencing the wrong location, could this be the issue?

    Yep, it looks like McAfee messed with it. If you like, download and merge the REG file I attached below. It will change the path in the registry to what it should be by default. If you get an error that part of the REG file couldn't be merged, then you will need to take ownership of the InprocServer32 key using step 3 in OPTION THREE of the tutorial below first, then merge the REG file again.

    When finished, hopefully the shortcut will run without getting that error anymore. :)

    Shawn,

    That did the trick! I actually just gave User and Administrators full control in permissions for the InprocServer32 key.

    Thanks for all of your help! I would have never figured this out by myself.
