Notepad will work. :^)

Just save this to a text file using notepad and run it

'MyTest.vbs
Wscript.Echo "Hello world!"

          *Working with script editor which may detect failed lines or arguments is better than notepad in my opinion. Following link contains some.

vbs Is Not VB.
If you're working inside a VB coding environment, your vbs code will report syntax errors based upon VB code...

Use something like http://www.vbsedit.com/

        If you read carefully you will see that it is not VB its vbs. Link i referred contains Vbseditors. VbsEdit 3.0 for example. Even the htm is vbs-editor.htm
