"csript.exe/wscript.exe" Command Version and Options
This section describes how to start 'cscript' or 'wscript' command and what options are available.
If you want to find out if WSH is available or not on your Windows system, you can run "cscript /?" in a command window:
C:\herong>cscript /? Microsoft (R) Windows Script Host Version 5.6 Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation 1996-2001. All rights reserved. Usage: CScript scriptname.extension [option...] [arguments...] Options: //B Batch mode: Suppresses script errors and prompts from displaying //D Enable Active Debugging //E:engine Use engine for executing script //H:CScript Changes the default script host to CScript.exe //H:WScript Changes the default script host to WScript.exe (default) //I Interactive mode (default, opposite of //B) //Job:xxxx Execute a WSF job //Logo Display logo (default) //Nologo Prevent logo display: No banner will be shown at execution time //S Save current command line options for this user //T:nn Time out in seconds: Maximum time a script is permitted to run //X Execute script in debugger //U Use Unicode for redirected I/O from the console
The output tells me that I have WSH 5.6 installed on my Windows XP system.
The "wscript" command has same command line options.
