VBScript

VBScript is a powerfull scripting language wich could be used to automate most of the tasks in Windows environment including:
  • windows configuration (i.e. windows registry modifications, network interface configuration, windows process management, etc...)
  • via a COM object interface can be used to automate tasks in many applications including Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint and even Internet Explorer
  • Excel marcos
I learnt VBScript in order to use functional testing tools for which VBScript is de facto a standard.


This website gathers code samples which could be used as a script on its own or as a heling method in your own code.
