The normal procedure to call a console-mode VBScript is to execute it through cscript.exe
cscript /nologo scriptname.vbs parm1 parm2 ...
In order to avoid having to type "cscript /nologo" for calling VBScripts, a new file extension can be registered. (This works with Windows 2000, XP or newer). After that, the script can be directly called from the command line:
scriptname parm1 parm2 ...
The following commands can be used to register the file extension ".vbs_console" for console-mode VBScript files. (This registration is stored permanently within the Windows system registry):
assoc .vbs_console=VBS_Console_File ftype VBS_Console_File="%%SystemRoot%%\system32\CScript.exe" //E:vbs //nologo "%%1" %%*
Additionally, the new file extension ".vbs_console" has to be added to the PATHEXT environment variable.
(The Scripts have to be renamed from *.vbs to *.vbs_console)
