That's what I have installled (Trial License) and it works well.  The trial license never expires, so what are the advantages of buying the license, besides supporting a good product and avoiding the constant messages?

Just curious.  Ni...

I have a registered version at work and I know that you can get all the updates and some features are unlocked, but don't know what features.

If it works fine in trial and it have all you need, then don't buy a license :)

I second that.  vbsedit is excellent, and the trial version is all I use, as well.  Another one I've come to enjoy using is Notepad++.  The nice thing about it...it's not limited to vbscript.  It supports all of these...

C, C++, Java, C#, XML, HTML, PHP, Javascript, RC file, makefile, nfo, doxygen, ini file, batch file, ASP, VB/VBS, SQL, Objective-C, CSS, Pascal, Perl, Python, Lua, Unix Shell Script, Fortran, NSIS and Flash action script

Second Notepad++. Can be customized very nicely. If you use it remember to set it to open new documents with VB / VBScript as default language.

Just installed Notepad++.  It looks good, but intellisense doesn't seem to work.

VBSEdit's intellisense works great and it shows an object browser on the right that is populated ad-hoc as per the objects referenced in the code.  Nice feature...

Let me know if I'm overlooking features in Notepad++ or if I just don't understand how to turn them on.

Here are the ones I have poked around at from time to time.  A couple have already been mentioned, but a couple of other ones to check out.

You can also use the Microsoft Script Editor for basic editing of VBS file (with highlighting), but I never found it much better than a good programmers editor like SlickEdit.

I think VBSEdit is the way to go for the type of user I am (minimal).  The price is right at $59.

For novices, like me, VBSEdit also has a nice Samples menu which has hundreds of examples.

Primal Script looks really nice too, but it is hard to justify the price for the amount of scripting I will be doing.

Thanks for all the input.  Ni...
