The Windows Script Host

The Windows Script Host is a scripting host that allows you to run scripts within the windows operating system. The idea is very similar to UNIX Shell scripting and DOS batch files. These scripts can be run from the command line (in a DOS command shell window) or within native Windows. The Windows Script Host is ideal for automating common tasks, writing network login scripts, and administrating an NT network. Besides just executing the script you write, the Windows Script Host also includes and installs a set of objects that make it easy to access the Windows file system and environment. The Windows Script Host Scripts are not limited to those written in VBScript. It can execute scripts written in any language that confirms to the the ActiveX Scripting specification, including JavaScript, Pearl, and Python
