I need to find a program where I can debug some VB script.

At the moment, I write vbs in notepad, but I need to debug my code before I go live with it.
The application should be free.

use

Notepade++

or
Microsoft Visual Studio Express Edition? It's free and allows most of the development activities.

Have you tried doing CSCRIPT //X yourscript.vbs?

Also, while not quite free, for relatively small money this is a decent tool.  http://www.vbsedit.com/

CodeBot and RogerArd:

I was already using Notepad++, but didn't know I could use it to debug.

I tried to do what RogerArd was sending me, but I don't get a Command "Debug Script". Even if I delete "        <Command name="Launch in Safari" Ctrl="yes" Alt="yes" Shift="yes" Key="70">safari &quot;$(FULL_CURRENT_PATH)&quot;</Command>
"
it is still there.

I have followed the link, but I don't get a command to do it.
