Â- The 32-bit version.
- The editor in itself: no problem to load and edit a VBS file (or an HTA file).
- Code completion: it works fine for the classes and procedures defined in the user code, but not for the native Windows objects (i.e. WScript and WMI classes).
- Object browser: same problems as the code completion. It displays correctly the classes and procedures dÂefined in the user code, but not the native Windows objects (WMI classes are empty, "Could not load library" for WScript).
Note: VbsEdit is provided with a tool targeted at HTA editing. This tool, HtaEdit, has exactly the same working features than VbsEdit. One little exception: the object browser displays correctly the classes from the "Microsoft HTML Object Library".
What does not
Â- The 64-bit version.
- Context sensitive help: nothing happens when you press the F1 key.
- Debugger: whÂen you try to launch a debugging session, you get the message "Failed to load pdm.dll. Ensure that pdm.dll is installed on this computer".
- WMI snippets: the list is empty!
Note: VbsEdit is provided with a tool targeted at HTA editing. This tool, HtaEdit, has exactly the same problems than VbsEdit.
What was not tested
- Convert a VBS file into an executable.
- Print a VBS file.
IMPORTANT: The setup program does not work at all (32-bit and 64-bit versions): see the previous test data. To use VbsEdit, you must install it in a Windows OS and grab all the files after installation.
