Microsoft Script Control

Microsoft Script Control is an ActiveX component which is used to execute scripts if it is selected in the current Workspace. It is the default way of the script execution. The Script Control cannot execute a project (*.wsf).

It your operating system is Windows 95, Windows 98 or Windows ME, they you may need to install the Script Control. Follow the steps as described below.

It is necessary to download the Script Control:

  • Go to
  • When you are re-directed, select Web development > Windows Script > Windows Script Control in the tree control on the left side.
  • Click Download on the right side.

The file has about 208 KB. Install it on the system. This should not be necessary if the operating system is Windows 2000 which already contains the control.

Object WScript is automatically created only when the script is executed by Windows Script Host (WScript.exe or CScript.exe). If the script that references WScript object is executed by Microsoft Script Control it will terminate with the Error 500.
Change the way the script is executed in the
Workspace settings in such a case.
