Tools for Working with Windows Script Host Scripts

Though you can create and edit WSH scripts with Notepad, it is a lot easier to work with them in the Microsoft Script Editor (MSE), using the VBScript downloadable Help file for reference. Curiously, neither the MSE nor the VBScript Help file appears as part of the interface when you work with a WSH script; you have to locate (and possibly download) these files and set them up manually to provide a more functional working environment. The next sections tell you how to obtain and use these tools for working with WSH scripts.
