Windows script issue (won't run .svb files but will run .vbs ones)

I have a Windows Server 2003 box (running Cisco's version of the OS, which is probably the problem).

Anyway my issue is that I am trying to run a few scripts on this server and basically whilst .vbs files run ok, .svb ones to not.

For testing I have a very simple script [msgbox ("Hello World")] and if I save this as a Hello.vbs file it runs fine, if I save it as a Hello.svb file it runs and gives this error:

There is no script engine for file extension ".svb"

There is seemingly nothing wrong with the file association for .svb files and I have also reinstalled Windows Script 5.7 which hasn't helped.
