No problem ascnd!

I suspect that the user you're 'running as..' doesn't have the .VBS file extension associated with either wscript or cscript - it's always a good idea to specify the application to run the script with to avoid issues like this - in a corporate enviroment, you'd find that the I.T. people (developers etc.) would have associated VBS files with their fave editor for example ...

cheers
