VB Script - VBS - running them outside of MS Office apps?

Do you need to be inside an MS Office application to run a VBS file? (Visual Basic Script)?

Also can I get a few learning sites for VB script?  I know very little about it.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No. The programming language within Microsoft Office files is Visual Basic for Applications aka VBA. VBS aka Visual Basic Script is a similar subset of Visual Basic, but it is stand-alone.

After that, you have test.vbs, you can run it at command-lin with "cscript test.vbs" or
