I have configured an alert to notify me when disk space is low.  I am trying to configure the alert to send me an email using a vbs script.  I have checked the Application log so I know the alert is configured correctly as I get events posted.  

The vbs script I have configured works properly when executed manually either using cscript or wscript.  However, when I check Run this Program and point to the script, the script does not execute.  Also, If I try to enter the path c:\winnt\system32\wscript.exe - I get an error saying the program file does not exist.  I get the same error when trying to enter the path to cscripts and the vbs location  (e:\winnt\system32\cscript.exe e:\scripts\sendmessage.vbs ).  I have also tried entering this into a bat file, which also works when executed manually, but not when entered into the Task.
