Windows 7: CScript Error: Can't find script engine "VBScript" -alternate solution

29 Dec 2014   #21

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

Thanks for keeping this topic around! It was just the fix I needed after installing Stardock's DesktopX and scripts would not run causing any theme which contained scripted objects to immediately crash the program. I had to change permissions in the registry before I was allowed to edit the neccessary key, then I applied the your patch and Voila! Thanks Guys and Gals!

Oh and by the way it was avast antivirus that had altered the registry key! And even though I had removed Avast a year prior, it hadn't removed the alteration.
