Whenever I'm attempting to run a VBE script on SBS 2003, I'm receiving the following error:

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file.  You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

I went ahead and checked permissions and everything is in line.  Perhaps Symantec is disabling this?

Hello

Yes the AV can block some extension with a message like that. Can you try to stop the real time protection of your symantec and retry to execute the script.

Went ahead and completely uninstalled Symantec and I'm still receiving the same error.

I've also went ahead and ensured that the Windows Scripting Host is enabled.  Still no luck.

Oddly enough, I found a tool from Symantec's website:

http://service1.symantec.com/sarc/sarc.nsf/html/pf/win.script.hosting.html

However when I go to download the tool, the server will act like it's downloading the file, and then it will instantly disappear.

Have you checked the file association for VBE?  It should list "Microsoft Windows Based Script Host".

If you need to reset it, the path for the open command should be:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\WScript.exe "%1" %*

It turned out to be an option on the properties dialog. The option allowed me to enable the script for runtime because it was made on another PC.
