Executing script problem

I have a script which I placed in a file named ADinfo.vbs. When I goto the command line (cmd or powershell) and execute the script, I get an error. Here is what I type:    cscript adinfo.vbs

Can you help me understand how to execute this properly?

The error returned is:   C:\adinfo.vbs(1, 1) Microsoft VBScript compilation error: Invalid character

Here is the script:

$strComputer = "."

$colItems = get-wmiobject -class "Win32_NTDomain" -namespace "root\CIMV2" `
-computername $strComputer

foreach ($objItem in $colItems) {
      write-host "Caption: " $objItem.Caption
      write-host "Client Site Name: " $objItem.ClientSiteName
      write-host "Creation Class Name: " $objItem.CreationClassName
      write-host "DC Site Name: " $objItem.DcSiteName
      write-host "Description: " $objItem.Description
