Have you made any changes on your computer prior to this issue?


“wscript.exe” is Windows Script Host which is a default program to open “.vbs” file types.


Let’s follow these methods & check if the issue persists:


Method 1

a. Type ‘cmd’ in Start, Run box. Right click on cmd in the Program list and then select the option Run as Administrator.

b. Type the following command, and then press ENTER on the keyboard:

cscript.exe //H:WScript


Method 2


You may re-register the vbscript.dll file:

a. Type ‘cmd’ in the Start, Run box, right-click on Command Prompt, click on Run as Administrator.

b. Type ‘Regsvr32 <space> vbscript.dll’.

c. Click the OK button.
