Is it possible to call a WCF Webservice Via VB Script? I know and have seen VB Script calling traditional webservices.
If you could provide a sample of how in VB Script you would call and respond to a WCF Webservice call I would appreciate it.

Thanks,
Matthew VanDerlofske

it is my understanding that WCF support in Ajax script (so i assume vb script although I have only used java script) was added with .NET 3.5 and VS2008 ... you have to add the ajax enabling code to your WCF..

Actually by vbscript I was thinking a script that would run on a server somewhere. Not really a webpage consuming the service.

In answer to your question you can call WCF services from VBSCRIPT. It is not easy the book WCF Unleashed from Wrox covers details of doing it. The WCF service must be exposed via COM, which can then be consumed by VBSCRIPT.
