9.13. Further Study

Given that writing scripts for the Windows Script Host is a language-dependent endeavor, the most helpful reference material will be specific to the particular language you're using. Microsoft's support web site for all their scripting technologies, including WSH, can be found at http://msdn.microsoft.com/scripting/. In addition to some limited documentation on VBScript and JScript, you can download updates to the WSH engine. Note that if you distribute scripts to other machines, you'll need to be careful of supporting features found only in newer releases of WSH.

Before committing to VBScript for a project, you may want to do some research on other supported languages listed here. Due to VBScript's heritage in web pages, security concerns have resulted in some limitations in the VBScript language, such as its inability to access the clipboard or link to external .dll files.
