One of my users can't run my VBScript.  We all have Microsoft XP Pro and the script runs on everyone else PC.  How can I add Microsoft Windows Based Script Host to this PC so it will run my script?

Well if you are sure this particular PC is MISSING Windows Scripting Host (WSH) you can go and download latest WSH v5.6 here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=c717d943-7e4b-4622-86eb-95a22b832caa&displaylang=en&Hash=e6ENLeODPWZMzGUhLyg4K79Htz4gE9i5VR9JMon0RqgOpEf4lrO0xoU2cCDbhZlwFsoB1P%2bqBpes6AVHxS7vGQ%3d%3d

Then just copy it on users PC and install it. However it is highly UNLIKELY that this PC is actually missing the WSH if it's Windows XP Pro or HOME....since both of them come with WSH pre-installed.

You can check if this users has following 2 files in their C:\Windows\System32\ folder to make sure that WSH is installed:
Wscript.exe
Cscript.exe

If these two files are there then please elaborate on what errors are you getting when your script is running on this particular PC, and maybe we can help you figure it out.

Good Luck. :-)
