Just a very stupid question. Many years ago you could access gwbasic through the OS. Does Vista OS provide the same basic coding facility whereby you can access the coding to try and write small programs? If so, how could I access it? Is there a help facility for it as well?

VBS is VB Script, not Visual Basic. Visual Basic has more features, VBS is a reduced subset. However, VBS is indeed the replacement for GW Basic.

If you want to write actual applications (not scripts) then use the FREE Visual Studio Express versions for the language of choice:
