VBS Active Directory Scripting

This section focuses on VBS that queries or modifies Active Directory. VBS (Visual Basic Scripting) is a list of VBS commands in a file that can be executed. The scripting is in text form and usually has a VBS extension. VBS files are by default launched (when you double click them) by the OS with the WSCRIPT.exe interpreter. The WSCRIPT interpreter runs behind the scenes and it is difficult to know when it stops and starts. There is another shell interpreter called CSCRIPT.exe this runs the VBS in a DOS window making it easier to know when the script has finished. You can switch the default shell interpreter but for the most part I leave them alone. If you accidentally launch a script that is malfunctioning you can stop the process in task manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC).
