    Hello,
    I have a Windows Xp pro machine with a .vbs file that for some reason everytime I try to run it I get a

    "There is no Script engine for file extension".vbs error

    Now before Xp wasn't even associating the file with .vbs extension but I went to view+folder+options+file types+vbs script file+Advanced+Open+Edit and changed the action(It was blank before) and put in the "application used to perform action:"
    (I got the path from another xp pro machine that recoginized .vbs extensions) and hit ok and now when I try to run the .vbs extension I get the above error message.

    Do I need to edit the registry at all?
    I do not have much experience in this area so any help would be greatly appreciated...thanks!

    thanks, it will open up the file but know it is supposed to automate the defrag keys and it is not doing that.
