This "blog" is really just a scratchpad of mine. There is not much of general interest here. Most of the content is scribbled down "live" as I discover things I want to remember. I rarely go back to correct mistakes in older entries. You have been warned :)



If you invoke a Windows script directly from a command prompt, it will be launched using WScript and its exit status (set using WScript.Quit) will be gobbled.  If you launch it using CScript, the exit status will be returned properly.  Interestingly, if you invoke a script file from within a batch file, CScript is used automatically, despite the default file association to WScript.
