I originally had this code as a Sub within another VBScript and it functioned correctly.

But now I need it as a standalone script at get this runtime error:
Object doesn't support this property or method: WScript.Arguments

So I have left something out to be able to correctly receive the command line arguments.  Can anyone please point out my error(s)?

Hi

All you need to do is chnage it to this
Dim msgType : msgType = WScript.Arguments(0)
Dim strSubject : strSubject = WScript.Arguments(1)
Dim strMessage : strMessage = WScript.Arguments(2)
