I'm running a compiled vb module from the command line and would like messages printed for debugging purposes.  I tried the below, which works fine in vbscript, but I get an "object not found" error in compiled vb.

set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WScript.Echo "Hello World"

Probably the best you can do is using a MsgBox statement:

MsgBox "Hello World"
