Run VBScripts on Schedule
The Z-Cron commando VBSCRIPT runs Visual Basic scripts. VBScript is a simple scripting language based on Visual Basic (VB) and can be run on every modern Windows system with Windows Scripting Host (WSH).
For time-controlled execution of Visual Basic scripts, Microsoft Windows Scripting Host must be activated. You can test if your system is ready for VBScript by starting the example script file ZDB-Test.vbs that is shipped with Z-Cron.
Z-Cron comes with some other example scripts: Outlook.vbs, OutlookExpress.vbs, and KillTask.vbs.
Microsoft offers an online VBScript manual. Some methods and properties of the WScript object cannot be used in VB scripts; there is a Microsoft support article with more info.
In combination with the STARTREMOTE command, these commands can also be executed on a remote computer in the local network. Z-Cron must be installed on both the target computer and the computer which issues the command.
