Internet Explorer VBScript on Intranet

I'm having trouble with a simple winmgts script.  I'm sure I must have a coding error, I just cannot see it.

<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<html>
<head>

  <title></title>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    <style>
.result {
    border: 2px solid;
    border-radius: 50px;
    padding-top: 25px;
    padding-right: 50px;
    padding-bottom: 25px;
    padding-left: 50px;
    width:500px;
}

    </style>
<script language="VBScript">
function foo()
dim strComputer
dim objReg

on error resume next

strComputer = "."

Set objReg = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\default:StdRegProv")

If Err <> 0 Then
   foo = err.number & " " & err.description
end if

If Err = 0 Then
  foo = "ok"
Else
  foo = err.number & " " & err.description
End If

end function

</script>

<script type="text/javascript">
function myFunction() {
    document.getElementById("status").innerHTML ="Before Call to foo()";
    document.getElementById("result").innerHTML = foo();
    document.getElementById("status").innerHTML = "After Call to foo()";
}
</script>


</head>
<body onload="myFunction()">
<h3>Results should show up below</h3>
<div id="result" class="result"></div>
<hr></hr>
<br></br>
<div id="status"></div>
<p>Test 0001</p>
</body>
</html>

What version of IE?
ActiveX is disabled by default in modern versions
Goto Tools > Internet Options > Security tab
Check the settings there

ok, It is definitely a security setting.  I was able to get it to work by setting the security settings to low, but I should not have to do that.

at least I know that the code is ok.  this is intended to run locally, not across the internet.

cannot do as HTA, has to be hosted on IIS...
