LWE10067 : Howto set the default interpreter for scripting host. Wscript versus Cscript.

Symptom:

The standard is wscript but you rather prefer cscript

Cause:

Wscript is the default value.

Solution:

To change the default interpreter for windows scripting host you use the command:

wscript //H:cscript

To get the default back

wscript //H:wscript

With cscript your echo messages land on a command line which makes it easy to pipe in different processes. With wscript you will get litte messageboxes on the screen and have to click OK. You can try the following little example:

 

WScript.Echo "Hi Lubby"
WScript.Echo "We were always looking for a knowledgebase"
WScript.Echo "and now we found it. :-)"
