Use WScript.Echo():

    "Outputs text to either a message box or the command console window."

How Echo() behaves depends on how the script was run though.
-->  If it is run with WScript.exe, then a GRAPHICAL msgbox pops up.
-->  If it is run with CScript.exe then the text is echoed out to the Console.

    WScript.Echo "Hello World!"
