its only a basic .vbs file that launches word with a template and populates some values in the template. its just that the computer i want to run it on hasnt got a VB environment on it at all and therefore has no association to .VBS files.

Hi,

That is not the file you need, what you need is called "Windows Script Host", which you can download from here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/downloads/list/webdev.asp
It is part of the first two downloads.

I downloaded the winnt one for my winnt box and it still doesnt recognise .vbs files. i thought at least it would have created a file association.

sorry i was wrong. it has created file associations but it only works for the administrator, it doesnt work for 'normal users' on the winnt box. i get an access denied msg when trying to run the vbs file. ideas?

I'm sorry, I don't know, it has been a couple of years since I worked with scripting.
