First, it would sure help if you gave us more information about your computer, specifically the operating system...
Second, start by installing the newest Windows Script Engine from the appropriate link below:
Windows Script 5.6 for Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition, and Windows NT 4.0
Windows Script 5.6 for Windows XP and Windows 2000
Next, if that doesn't help, then please download and install the Visual Basic 6 SP6 runtime files from the link below:
You may also need Java, but please try the above steps first and let us know how it goes.
You may also have a problem with spyware which is causing the issues.. Have you scanned your computer with antispwyare tools and if so, which ones?
Hope this helps and let us know more.
Been having problems with my computer lately, and I think I may have finally hammered down the problem, though I'll be honest when I say I have no idea how to fix it.
After some effort, a restore, and a few other things I have myself running at about 90% of what I should be, but a few programs refuse to work, and I regularly have problems installing new programs.
I recently got this message, which may explain a lot:
"<program name> could not be installed because Visual Basic Script (VBScript) is not installed or has been disabled. Make sure VBScript is installed, turn off script blocking in anti-virus and personal firewall software, re-register VBScript, and install the program."
I've been looking around.. but I can't for the life of me figure out *where* to re-enable VBScript or more importantly, reinstall it. I'm fairly sure I have no script blocking software, so I'd really like to reinstall VBScript... anybody got any ideas?
