Let's try this first.

Open an elevated Command Prompt window. To do so, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. Type the following command in the Command Prompt window, and press {ENTER}:

regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\vbscript.dll

You should see the following message:

DllRegisterServer in vbscript.dll succeeded.

Now see if the problem persists.

Check to see if Windows remote management is installed, and reinstall the WSH configuration settings:

  1. Find the Windows/inf directory.
    • Enter %windir%\inf into the run, command-line, or Explorer address field and press Enter (this directory is commonly located at C:\WINDOWS\inf)
  2. This directory is hidden; unhide as follows:
    • Tools → Folder Options → View → Advanced Settings
    • Uncheck "Hide protected operating system files"
  3. Within the inf directory, find the "wsh.inf" file.
  4. Right-click on the file and select Install.
  5. Retest the scripting engine.
  6. This will restore these files:
    • .js
    • .jse
    • .wsh
    • .vbs
    • .vbe
    • .wsc
    • .wsf
