A facility within Windows that executes ActiveX scripting languages including Microsoft's own VBScript and JScript, as well as PerlScript, PScript and others. The scripts can be run from the desktop using the WSCRIPT.EXE program or from a command line using CSCRIPT.EXE. Windows supports commands and batch files similar to DOS, but the Windows Script Host enables a much more comprehensive set of scripting languages to be run in the Windows environment. Such languages can gain access to many more internal Windows functions than can the batch commands. See VBScript, JScript.
