    Testing scripts

    Dag nab it!

    I've looked in IE Help and Winoze Help, but don't see anything that mentions how to:

    1. Run the Windows Scripting Host.
    2. Disable/enable Javascript.

    Thanx, I had disabled scripting, but not Java applets.

    Re: Testing scripts

    I am able to disable JavaScript by disabling Active Scripts in the InterNet Zone in IE.
    But, I cannot seem to disable JavaScript the same way for the Intranet Zone, which I guess is what is used when not connected to the internet.
    Can JavaScript be disabled on a local machine?

    IE presents identical Custom Settings dialogs for all zones, so you definitely can enable/disable scripting as you please. (You can force the My Computer zone to appear as one of the zones with a registry setting.) I believe Intranet refers to the subnet defined in your ipconfig settings, but I haven't tested that suspicion.

    Thanx, I forgot about the hidden "My Computer" zone.

    Interesting that MSFT hides the zone to protect users from themselves, yet enables scripting by default.
